Rome Firefighters responded to an early morning structure fire on Piedmont Avenue just behind the Shorter Avenue Baptist Church Thursday.
The call came in just before 7 a.m. and firefighters quickly extinguished the blaze.
Captain Nate Helms with the Rome Fire Department said the homeowner told him they left a heater on in the shed and that was likely the cause.
Firefighters were on the scene for about an hour and no one was injured.
