LAWTON, Okla._Several storage crates were destroyed in a fire Tuesday night and firefighters say the damage could have been much worse.

Firefighters were called to Southwest Jefferson Avenue and Sheridan Road where several wooden crates had caught fire. Investigators say all the crates were empty. Firefighters are unsure how the fire started, but believe it may have been intentionally or accidentally set, possibly by a homeless person. A passerby saw the fire and called 911.

Firefighters say the fire would have been much worse had it ignited later in the night. A fire marshal was called in to investigate.
