Fire Destroys Storage Shed At Golf Club Near Denison


GRAYSON COUNTY, TX -- A fire destroyed a maintenance shed at a golf club near Denison.

The blaze started around 9:30 a.m. on Sunday at the Denison Golf and Country Club on F.M. 84. The manager there tells us a maintenance worker heard some sort of explosion, and staff members ran out to see what was going on.

That's when they found one of their sheds, where lawn mowers, generators, and other maintenance equipment is kept, was burning.

"Things were catching on fire and more explosions happened, so we really don't know what happened other than the fact that there was an initial explosion, and the building caught on fire," says general manager Gary Owen. "It really burned quickly."

Firefighters were able to quickly put out the blaze, and since it was outside of city limits, it will be up to the county fire marshal to investigate, Denison Fire Capt. Mark Escamilla said.
