Fire destroys storage shed at Jewish youth camp in White County

By Dean Dyer WRWH Radio

(Cleveland) - A storage shed at a Jewish youth camp in White County was destroyed in an early morning fire Thursday.  White County Public Safety Director David Murphy said firefighters responded to the blaze at Camp Coleman just north of Cleveland just after 1 AM. 

White County Firefighters with mutual aid from Cleveland Fire Department and Lee Arrendale Fire Brigade were dispatched.

According to Murphy, the building was used for storage at the camp located at 201 Camp Coleman Drive. When firefighters arrived the structure was approximately 70% involved. Murphy said firefighters set up a defensive attack due to exposure, power line issues, and the extent of fire involvement.  

No one was injured, and the cause of the fire is under investigation, said Murphy.

Fire personnel remained on scene for approximately five and half hours.
