Small tobacco sheds catch fire

LAKE PARK, GA (WALB) - Three small aluminum tobacco sheds caught fire just after 6 a-m Tuesday morning at Herring Farms on Bradford Rd. in South Lowndes Co.

The farm is just outside Lake Park. Several racks of tobacco were lost, but the damage estimate isn't clear yet.

The tobacco sheds were still standing after the fire. Fire officials believe the cause was electrical in nature and originated inside one of the sheds, but didn't have a more specific cause as of 5 p.m. Tuesday evening.

One firefighter was transported to South Georgia Medical for treatment, but was not seriously injured.
