WESTMOND — No injuries were reported after a shed caught fire off Westmond Road on Monday.

“Fire crews arrived to find a fully involved shed fire. Firefighters aggressively attacked the fire to prevent it from spreading to the forest,” Selkirk Fire Rescue & EMS said in a post published to the department’s Facebook page.

The cause of the shed fire was deemed accidental.

The blaze was reported shortly after 11 a.m., according to a Bonner Dispatch log.
