Grass fire snuffed out

Emergency crews responded to a small grass fire on Campbell Road in West Kelowna, just after 3 p.m.

"We responded quickly. We had three fire apparatus that attended. We found a relatively small fire that we were able to put out. The fire burned in the grass and extended into a couple trees," said Fire Chief Jason Brolund. 

"There was no wind today and the conditions have improved slightly, so the fire didn't spread," he added. 

The fire was about 20 feet by 20 feet in size. 

The cause is under investigation. 


UPDATE: 3:22 p.m

West Kelowna fire crews appear to have a small grass/brush fire well in hand.

Smoke has noticeably diminished, and no open flame is visible.


ORIGINAL: 3:12 p.m.

Fire crews are responding to a small grass fire on the Westside, near the west end of the W.R. Bennett Bridge.

A Ministry of Highways webcam on the bridge shows a small plume of smoke said to be coming from the area near Campbell Road and Campbell Place, which is right on the border between Westbank First Nation land and West Kelowna.

Castanet has a reporter headed to the scene.

It's not yet known what may have caused the fire.
