Firefighters extinguish grass fire on city outskirts

No property damage, however, investigators suspect the blaze was human-caused.

14 firefighters and four apparatus responded to a grass fire inside City limits near Echo Field Road and Highway 95A overnight.

Around 12:50am, Thursday morning, Cranbrook Fire and Emergency Services responded to the fire which was burning an area roughly 225 feet by 100 feet with some nearby trees starting to candle.

Thanks to quick action by the public reporting the fire and the quick response and action by fire crews, the fire was contained and extinguished. Crews remained on scene until 4:30am watching for hot spots and flair ups.

There was no property damage or any injuries. Investigators returned to the scene this morning and expect the fire was human caused.
