Firefighters responded to a residential grass fire on the 100th block on Whistler Place.
Interim Chief of Vernon Fire Rescue Services (VFRS) David Lind said neighbours pulled together to distinguish the fire with their garden hoses.
“It was pretty much out by the time we got here. They did a great job,” said Lind.
Lind also said the residents were unsatisfied with the response time, but there was little the VFRS could do because they were working on grass fires near Predator Ridge.
