A homemade wood stove was believed to be the source of a fire which destroyed a shed Sunday at 13845 County Road 19, 4 ½ miles southeast of Ashby.

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office reported that 40-year-old Daniel Orlen Olson called to report the fire had already burned the shed to the foundation. 

The Evansville Fire Department was paged to assure fire did not spread to the lot which contained trees and brush.
