A structure fire drew responses from five organizations in Kenai on Thursday afternoon.

Central Emergency Services, Kenai Fire Department, Kenai Police, the Alaska Division of Forestry and Enstar Natural Gas Co. responded to reports of a structure fire on North Dogwood Road in Kenai around 2 p.m. Thursday.

No one was hurt, but the fire consumed two sheds, a chicken coop and burned the outside of a home. Kenai Fire Department extinguished the blaze within roughly 30 minutes, said Kenai Fire Chief Jeff Tucker.

Enstar responded to shut off the gas to the house and the Division of Forestry responded because the flames had begun to spread across the dry grass in the yard.

The cause of the fire is still unknown, Tucker said.
