Fire destroys storage shed in Rantoul


A storage shed at a Rantoul residence was destroyed by fire late Friday afternoon.

The shed, located at 642 St. Andrews Circle and owned by Golfview Village, was rented by David Usher.

Fire Chief Ken Waters said a trash can on fire next to the shed caught the building on fire.

Fifteen firefighters responded to the call at 5:30 p.m. and cleared the scene an hour later, according to Waters.

Waters estimated damage at approximately $3,000.
