It took a lot of water to put out a large brush fire off Highway 97 in Penticton Thursday afternoon.
Bylaw officers called in the blaze to the fire department around 2:45 p.m.
The fire had spread through the undergrowth and grass to cover an area of roughly 30 feet by 30 feet, and looked to have gotten inside a log as well.
Fire crews arrived shortly after but had to bring in their hoses a fair distance into the woods to get at the fire off Okanagan Avenue West.
Bylaws told the Western News that a transient camp had been cleared in that location in the morning but there wasn’t anyone there at the time of the fire.
