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.
