Little Dixie Fire Protection District is reporting a fire in the 20000 block of Highway FF outside Mexico on Saturday morning.
When fire crews arrived on scene they found a large supply of firewood next to an outside woodstove was heavily involved in flame.
The fire was approximately 20 feet from the residence.
Firefighters made an aggressive attack and prevented the fire from reaching the house. The furnace was also able to be saved.
The family had been fighting the fire with a garden hose before emergency crews arrived.
The cause of the fire appears to be a spark from the wood stove landing in the fire wood.
No one was injured in the incident.
