Crews contain afternoon fire in La Plata

Crews battle La Plata fire

An afternoon fire kept crews busy in LaPlata on Tuesday afternoon.

It started in the machine shed behind Linda McHenry's house after a piece of cardboard caught fire during a morning welding session.

McHenry noticed heavy black smoke coming out of the shed and quickly called 9-1-1.

Crews were able to contain the blaze which had spread to the roof of the shed by the time they arrived.

McHenry's son even helped crews put it out using a garden hose.

Fortunately no one was hurt.
