Suspicious grass fire in West Kelowna

Fire crews in West Kelowna snuffed out a grass fire on Campbell Road.

UPDATE: 3:45 p.m.

A small grass fire that ignited just after 3 p.m. grew to 20 feet by 20 feet by the time firefighters arrived on scene at Campbell Road.

West Kelowna Fire Chief Jason Brouland said conditions were favourable to quickly douse the blaze.

“It’s cool out, there was a lack of wind, and there is a bit more moisture in the air,” he explained.

The blaze does appear to be suspicious and fire investigators are looking into the cause.
