Afternoon blaze

Penticton firefighter Steve Garrett hoses down a hot spot from a grass fire on the west side of Carmi Road Wednesday afternoon. About 20 personnel from the city department and the initial attack division of the BC Forest Service were at the scene for several hours fighting the fast-moving fire. Just over two acres were involved in what was believed to be a human-caused fire. - Mark Brett/Western News
