North Cedar Volunteer Fire Department managed to get a fire under control before it destroyed a home.

Firefighters responded at about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday to a property at 1742 Wilkinson Rd. in the Cedar area where they found a four-by-three metre shed ablaze next to a mobile home.

Percy Tipping, North Cedar Volunteer Fire Department chief, said heat and flame from the burning shed did extensive damage to the exterior of the residence.

No one was injured.
