     FENNIMORE, Wis. (AP) - The National Weather Service says a preliminary investigation indicates a small tornado caused damage in southwestern Wisconsin.
 
     A barn and machine shed were destroyed near Fennimore Wednesday afternoon. Several other buildings were damaged, with debris scattered through a field.
 
     Homeowner Lance Lenzendorf tells WMTV-TV that the storm was short-lived but intense. The Grant County Emergency Management office says there was a path of damage about 1 1/2 miles long. No one was hurt.
 
     Emergency Management Director Steve Braun says radar didn't indicate a tornado and no one reported one to authorities. But photos of what might be a funnel cloud or small tornado were forwarded to the weather service.
 
     The weather service also will be surveying whether a tornado caused minor structural damage and tree damage in Washington County.
