A few volunteers came to the aid of Rimbey firemen on Monday evening to help battle a bush fire.

Observers say the fire first started in some dry grass and then spread to a large wooded area.

A nearby work crew from Ponoka County came to the rescue with a bulldozer and created a fire break to stop the flames from spreading.

The cause of the fire has not been determined.
