SHELBYVILLE, IL. —

Shelbyville firefighters were called to the scene of a shed fire in the trailer park on South Third Street Friday afternoon. 

The shed was a total loss and a neighboring mobile home suffered damage to the exterior wall and framework. A teen who was home at the time admitted to smoking in the shed prior to the fire.

There were no injuries reported. Mutual aid was provided by Tower Hill.

Earlier Friday Shelbyville firefighters responded to a yard fire at 415 South 5th Street when a brush fire got out of control due to dry grass and wind. The fire was extinguished quickly and there was no other damage.
