ATHENS — Fire destroyed this storage shed Thursday morning at Greg Crow Wrecker Service off U.S. 31 South in Athens. Firefighters responded to the blaze about 10 a.m. but the shed could not be saved. Fire Chief Tony Kirk said the business had obtained a permit to do a controlled-burn when some embers accidentally spread to the storage shed.
