High winds and a steep incline made for a tough battle on Sunday afternoon as flames tore through five hectares of grass at Peterson Creek.
Smoke started billowing over downtown at around 3:30 p.m.
The flames attracted 15 Kamloops Fire Rescue crew members and several engines as well as numerous drivers who pulled over along the Trans-Canada Highway to observe the action.
Kamloops firefighters soon called in 10 provincial wildfire personnel and a helicopter. Structures were never in danger, according to Fire Rescue Chief Dale Greffard.
Less than two hours later, the blaze was contained and the crews were undertaking mop-up measures.
A Kamloops Fire rescue inspector is investigating the cause.
