The Missoula Fire Department responded to two blazes that started late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning in Missoula.

Shortly before 11 p.m. Tuesday, firefighters were called a shed burning in the backyard of a house in the 1800 block of 34th Street. The fire had spread to a nearby power pole and power lines had fallen down.

NorthWestern Energy turned off power in the area, and firefighters put out the blaze. According to a news release from Fire Chief Jason Diehl, no other structures were damaged and no injuries were reported.

Just before 4:30 a.m. Wednesday, the fire department also responded to a vehicle fire at the intersection of International Drive and Western Way, near Reserve Street.

Fire crews found a utility vehicle with the engine and cab engulfed in flames. They doused the blaze, but nearby vehicles were damaged by the heat. No structures were damaged and no injuries were reported.

Both fires remain under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Fire Prevention Bureau at 552-6210.
