Cranbrook Fire and Emergency Services (CFES) extinguished a fire along the Elizabeth Lake trails which was causing concern to nearby residents.
CFES said it used a UTV to reach the small fire which had burned deep into the ground.
The smoke had been the cause of a number of 9-1-1 calls from concerned locals.
“Little risk at this time of year, but peace of mind is valuable,” said CFES in a tweet.
