The DeKalb County Volunteer Fire Department responded to a reported structure fire at 1:36 p.m.Wednesday at 600 Bluhmtown Road.

Chief Donny Green says some burning trash on the property apparently spread to a storage building and a smaller utility building next to it causing significant damage to both structures. He says firefighters were able to save the buildings and the contents, including tools, workout equipment, beds, and other miscellaneous items were also salvageable.

The fire apparently did not threaten the residence on the property, which belongs to Al Mahan but is being rented by Pam Gaus.

A relative and neighbor of Ms Gaus, Jason Gaus spotted the fire and reported it.

Members of the Short Mountain Highway, Blue Springs, and Cookeville Highway Stations responded along with DeKalb EMS and the Sheriff's Department. No one was injured.
