Shed fire

Mapleton Fire Department received a call at approximately 9:06pm on March 28. A child residing at a Spring Street residence in Drayton called 911 after seeing a shed on fire at his residence. Fire crews from the Drayton and Moorefield stations responded to the call. “Flames were shooting out of the roof by the time the department arrived. The shed was used to store clothing, bicycles and a barbecue. “Everything was destroyed in the fire,“ said Mapleton Fire Chief Rick Richardson. The cause of the fire is undetermined and damage is estimated at less than $10,000. “It was quick thinking by the little boy who called 911. The crews were at the station for their regular Tuesday night practice, so it took less time to get to the scene,” Richardson said.  Submitted photo
