A grass fire in the open space north of Waddington Drive in Sahali spread quickly but was just as quickly put out by 12 firefighters.
Assistant Fire Chief Mike Adams said the fire started behind a duplex at 410 Waddington Dr. around 4:30 p.m.
Fifteen minutes later, fire crews had it completely under control, with three engines and two bush trucks putting out the remaining hot spots.
Art Worth was inside his home at 414 Waddington Dr. when the fire started, when a neighbour called out to him from his backyard - she was spraying water onto the flames with his hose.
Worth said he grabbed the hose and continued attempts to put out the fire while the neighbour ran home and got her hose into the action as well.
Shortly after, the fire crew arrived.
It is unknown why the fire started but it spread quickly to the east and burned an area around 60 metres by 30 metres, according to Adams.
The field north of Waddington Drive is a B.C. Hydro right-of-way and doubles as a park, complete with trails.
Nobody was asked to leave her or his home.
