(ABC 6 NEWS) -- Rochester officials say a Friday afternoon shed fire caused more than $75,000 dollars in damage.

Fire crews were called to a home on 75th St. N.E. for a report of a shed on fire. When they arrived part of the shed had already collapsed. Crews had to shuttle in water to put out the blaze.

Eventually the entire shed collapsed. Crews remained on scene for several hours to make sure the fire did not spread to surrounding buildings.

The owners were not home when the fire started. A cat was saved from the blaze. The shed contained tools and lawn equipment.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
