CLACKAMAS COUNTY, OR (KPTV) - A shed owned by the City of Lake Oswego was destroyed after it caught fire Tuesday morning.

At around 5:30 a.m., firefighters responded to 195 Rosemont Road after a passerby saw flames coming from a building.

Crews arrived on scene and found a shed at the Firlane property fully-involved.

No injuries were reported.

Firefighters told FOX 12 that water tenders were used to shuttle water because there are no hydrants in the rural area.

"We have trails that people ride on, walk on. Just last week we had the Howl at the Moon run here," said Jeff Munro, with Lake Oswego Parks and Recreation.

City officials said the shed held supplies for park events such as Wednesday Concerts at Westlake Park. Officials said Wednesday's concert will go on as planned.

The fire caused about $300,000 in damage.

Authorities said the exact cause is unknown at this time, but they say it likely started in a tree stump, spread to the grass and a John Deere backhoe, and then the shed itself.
