Crews were called out to a brush fire at around 11:30 p.m. Saturday at a section of the Gaetz Lakes Sanctuary, near Kerry Wood Nature Centre.
There were no injuries and no structure damages, said deputy fire chief Chris Kearns.
“We put crews on 45th Avenue and crews on 67th Street, and they attacked it from two different directions,” said Kearns. “It was a good size fire.”
Cause of the fire is undetermined.
