Indio fire leaves one without a home

INIDO, Calif. - A shed and an apartment in Indio were damaged by fire early this morning, a Riverside County Fire Department spokeswoman said Sunday

The fire was reported at 3:13 a.m. in the 44900 block of Oasis Street, said the Riverside County Fire Department's Melody Hendrickson.

"The Incident Commander reported the fire consumed an outdoor shed, and extended to detached apartment unit,'' Hendrickson said.

It took about 20 minutes to put out the flames. The shed was about 25-square-feet in size, she said.

A woman was displaced by the fire but no injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
