TINBEERWAH resident Jay Harney has no idea what to do next after fire destroyed his shed and valuable possessions this afternoon.

He lost a car and a prized motorcycle.

A Department of Community Safety spokeswoman said the fire started in bush behind the shed and spread.

About 10 crews were sent out to battle the blaze.

The fire burnt about 2ha of grassland.
