PROSSER -- A fire destroyed a large outbuilding at a home in the 153100 block of West Johnson Road earlier this week.
The fire was reported about 10 p.m. Tuesday and crews remained on scene until 4 a.m. because of extensive work to make sure the flames were extinguished, said Chief Doug Merritt of Prosser Fire District 3.
Merritt said the outbuilding was full of miscellaneous items.
A man who lived in the structure said he awoke and saw fire, so he left. The cause of the fire was unclear.
