A weekend fire at a lakefront property near Birchwood is a reminder that fire danger remains high in the region.  

Firefighters were called to a lakeside property on Red Cedar Lake Sunday afternoon, when the owner started burning debris on the property but lost control of the blaze. 

The fire spread quickly, destroying a shed with tools and equipment and also causing damage to stairs leading to the lake.  

The Birchwood Fire Department was able to prevent the fire from spreading to the house, but an adjacent  wood lot also caught fire. 

Nobody was injured, but the shed and its contents are a total loss.
