Ottawa Fire Services crews were able to extinguish a blaze in a shed containing 5,000 cases of wood pellets on a property in the city’s south end on Thursday afternoon.

At 3:38 p.m., the fire service said, the homeowner reported that a flat bed truck had caught fire inside the shed and that the blaze had spread to the 40-by-80-foot structure, which, in addition to the 5,000 cases of wood pellets, used for heating homes, also contained quantities of propane and gasoline

Because the home on Mitch Owens Road, near Anderson and 9th Line roads, was located in an area without water hydrants, firefighters set up a shuttle system to bring water from another nearby source.

The fire was declared under control at 5:30 p.m. Another structure near the shed was undamaged, and there were no reported injuries, a media release said.
