A fire broke out inside a shed at a residential property on 1570 West Brock Avenue in Hermiston on Thursday shortly after 7 a.m.

Umatilla County Fire District 1 responded to the fire, which resulted in no injuries but did cause extensive damage to the building. It took an hour to knock the fire down to a manageable size, according to battalion chief Dennis McClure.

McClure said it was difficult to access the flames, and by the time UCFD1 made it to the scene, a lot of damage had occurred.

There is no cost estimate for the damage as of yet, and the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
