Sheriff deputies, on July 7, reported the loss of a shed and items worth close to $20,000 due to fire just before dawn. The fire took place southeast of Vergas.

The shed, 20 by 30 feet, was fully engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived at the scene of the fire at Sybil Lake Road.

Inside the shed, and destroyed by the fire, were an ATV, snowmobile, lawn mower, tools, lumber and other items. The owner said he would send an entire list later on to authorities.
