SOUTHMAYD, Tex. (KXII) - A fire destroyed a workshop in Southmayd Wednesday night.

Firefighters say lightning likely struck this shed on Dagnun and Swindle Rd. around 8 pm.m

There was no one inside the building at the time of the fire, and firefighters prevented it from spreading to a nearby home.

Officials say there was ammunition in the shed, so crews had to be extra careful when attempting to extinguish the fire.

It took several agencies three hours to put it out.

The official cause of the fire is under investigation.
