A fire late Wednesday night destroyed a shed on the property of Tuckahoe Plantation.

The shed went up in flames around 11:45 p.m. The fire was never a threat to the main house on the property.

Tuckahoe Plantation is located in the 12000 block of River Road.

Henrico County firefighters were called in to help battle the fire. Fire crews are expected to be back out Wednesday, just to make sure that the fire does not start back up.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, but foul play is not suspected, according to Goochland Fire crews.

Tuckahoe Plantation was the boyhood home of Thomas Jefferson, and is a National Historic Landmark.
