A shed fire in Knoxville yesterday evening resulted in minimal damage. Knoxville Deputy Fire Chief Don Witzenburg says that at about 7:45 yesterday, the Knoxville Fire Department responded to reports of smoke at 1329 South Lincoln St. He says when crews arrived, they found a shed to the back of the building on fire. The shed was about three feet from the trailer, but fire crews were able to keep the building from being damaged. There is no electrical hookup to the shed. Witzenburg adds the cause of the fire remains under investigation. The Knoxville Police Department also responded to the scene.
