West Kelowna fire crews were kept busy dealing with two grass fires Sunday.
Early Sunday evening, crews responded to a grass fire in the 3100 block of Thacker Drive.
The fire was confined to a couple of vacant lots within the gated community.
Assistant Fire Chief, Kerry Klonteig, says West Kelowna Fire responded with 11 men and quickly doused the small grass fire.
Klonteig says the fire is suspicious in nature.
The RCMP are investigating.
Earlier in the day, fire crews battled high winds to put out a grass fire on Gellatly Road. That fire started when a large hand-controlled kite hit power lines.
The resulting sparks started the fire.
