According to Atwater Fire Chief Gerald Schwartz, the fire started as a controlled brush fire. The blaze expanded to grass in a sheep pasture and then to the shed.

With dry conditions and no snow cover, the risk of fire danger is high, said Schwartz, who advised caution during controlled brush or grass fires.

"Don't turn your back. It'll get away from you," he said.

The fire was reported around 12:20 p.m. Saturday Crews from Atwater, Kandiyohi and Grove City were on the scene for about 2 ½ hours.
