We are receiving multiple reports of a brush fire near Sooke at Humpback.
Scanner reports are saying there’s not much of a plume, so it shouldn’t be a big fire. On inspection, there were three small spot fires. They anticipate that they will be quickly extinguished.
Langford fire department attended; the call was downgraded to “routine.”
Later reports heard on the scanner said there was a backfiring pickup that may have caused the problem. Pictured: generic exhaust pipes.
