A workshop behind a home on County Road 650 in the Theo area burned down Thursday.

The fire was fully involved when it was reported at about 12:30 p.m.

No one was at home when the fire started, and no one was hurt in the blaze, said Union Center/Theo Fire Chief H.C. Bates.

The cause of the fire was unknown but could have been an electrical shortage, Bates said.

The shop was located behind a house at 132 County Road 650, and Bates said the fire was reported by a passerby.

The Union Center/Theo Volunteer Fire Department was assisted by volunteer firefighters from Southwest Alcorn and Kossuth.

“We thank them,” Bates said.
