Neighbours and firefighters were quick to douse a late-night grass fire within the city Tuesday evening.
Vernon Fire Rescue Services were called to the 4000 block of 32nd Avenue shortly before 11 p.m. Aug. 2 where a small grass fire had been sparked on the hillside.
Upon arrival, firefighters found area residents were working together to attack the fire with multiple garden hoses. Firefighters took over the scene and finished extinguishing the fire.
The cause of the fire is unknown. No injuries were reported during the incident.
“Residents are reminded that conditions are very dry and fire can move very quickly,” said Vernon communications manager Christy Poirier.
Anyone who sees smoke or fire is asked to call 911 immediately.
