The Mitchell Fire Division responded to a fire in a pole shed Tuesday afternoon north of Mitchell.

Assistant Fire Chief Paul Morris said firefighters had the fire out within three minutes of arriving on scene at 40792 247th St.

"It was isolated to a very small area," Morris said.

A welding machine and some items around it caught fire, but Morris said it is unclear how they caught fire. He said the welder was plugged in but not turned on.
