At 10:59 p.m., Coweta County Fire Department firefighters were dispatched to a home on 154 East Camp Street in Moreland where a 100-square-foot outbuilding was consumed by fire, according to Coweta 911 officials.

Engine 4 arrived on scene and advised that an out building was fully involved with a house being a exposure problem, according to Bryan Fuller with the fire department. Engine 11 and a medic unit also assisted at the scene.

The fire was extinguished at 11:21 p.m. and firefighters remained on scene until 12:40 a.m. Friday morning, according to Coweta 911 records.
