Heat is the best way to kill it but it might need to get too high and for too long for the plywood. Fungus mycelium can grow deep enough into the wood to avoid any surface treatments so you may have to heat it long enough to raise the internal temperature to the lethal point. I am not sure how well the plywood will handle that.

BTW, that probably indicates that the moisture content got pretty high so you might want to check that if you have a meter. You also might need to reconsider storing wood in that shed if the MC is high enough for fungus to grow.
