On Friday, August 10, the Lake Cowichan Fire Department responded to a brush fire on Heger Crescent off Riverbottom Road. The alarm sounded at approximately 1:30 p.m.

The fire was located next to a residence, but was soon brought under control.

Because this fire was 5 kilometres past the last fire underwriters certified hydrant, and 8 km past the fire hall, the department had to utilize its tanker truck in order to put out the blaze.

Crews worked to douse the blaze while a B.C. Forest Service helicopter monitors from above. ILCFD crews refilled the tanker truck from the hydrant on Neva Road.
