McWilliams was unaware of any injuries. Firefighters from Hampden-Sydney, Farmville, Meherrin and Rice responded. There was limited damage other than the shed itself, according to McWilliams, and the cause of the fire remains under investigation.

A golfer saw smoke and reported the fire, according to McWilliams.
