Warren — A riding lawnmower is believed to be the culprit in a late night structure fire in Warren May 11.

Frank Collemer, homeowner at 292 South Shore Drive, had used the mower earlier in the afternoon before parking it in a storage shed, according the Fire Chief Ed Grinnell.

"There was no power to the shed," said Grinnell, who believes the mower somehow sparked the blaze. The fire was called in at 11:30 p.m.

Personnel from Warren Fire Department were on the scene for approximately an hour, according to Grinnell.
