Penticton fire crews were called to the scene of a small brush fire that ignited in the Skaha Lake area Tuesday morning.
The fire appeared to cover a small area of about 100 square feet at the north end of the parking lot at the Skaha Lake end of the Okanagan River Channel.
Capt. Glenn Beierle said there was visible flames when firefighters arrived, but they are still unclear what started the small blaze.
A small wind fuelled the flames, which took up quickly, but a speedy response kept it at bay, according to Beierle.
No bushes appear to have caught any significant flame, with mostly grass burning in the area.
