GOOCHLAND, VA (WWBT) - A shed went up in flames in Goochland and caused $15,000 in damage.

The fire happened around 2:30 p.m. on Sunday in the 5000 block of Mayo Lake Drive in Columbia. Fire crews say the 20x30 shed was destroyed, as well as the items inside.

A fire official says a lawnmower came in contact with dry leaves, which caused the fire.

The homeowner used a garden hose to prevent the fire from spreading to the home.
