Cranbrook Fire and Emergency Services were called out Tuesday afternoon to put out a wind-driven grass fire.
CFES said fire can spread rapidly during the seasonal window, as surface fuels last until “green-up.”
Residents are encouraged to call 911 if they see a fire on the landscape, no matter the time of year.
