The Hecker and Red Bud fire departments responded about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday to a fully engulfed shed in the alley behind 220 E. Monroe Street in Hecker. The estimated 20-by-30-foot old wooden shed was completely destroyed.

Officials believe a stray ember from a burn pile just north of the shed may have caused the blaze.
