Wind fuels trash fire; flames destroy nearby shed

PENN TWP., Pa. - A gust of wind caused a trash fire in Berks County to get out of hand Monday afternoon.

Firefighters were dispatched shortly after 2 p.m. for the report of a shed and field on fire at 32 Grange Rd. in Penn Township.

The property owner was burning trash when the wind caused the flames to ignite some nearby brush and a shed, fire officials said.

No one was injured, but officials said the shed is a total loss.
