By  | 

Lauderdale County, Miss. Lauderdale County firefighters were called to a structure fire on Saturday afternoon.

It happened about 4:00 at a storage shed near a home on Cedar Lane in Toomsuba. The Lauderdale County Fire Service says this fire was not a result of the dry weather. Instead, it was caused by an electrical malfunction.

Meanwhile, firefighters have responded to as many as 16 brush fires since Friday. Lauderdale County Fire Service Coordinator Allan Dover asks that people refrain from burning during the dry and windy conditions.
