Victoria fire crews rushed to put out two different brush fires along Dallas Road Friday morning as tinder-dry conditions remain a major concern on much of Vancouver Island.
The first blaze broke out along Dallas Road near Douglas Street at around 7:30 a.m. There were reports of heavy smoke in the area but the fire was quickly knocked down by firefighters.
A burnt-out propane tank was found at the fire scene.
Then a few hours later, fire crews rushed to another brush fire.
The fire broke out around 11:30 a.m. along the Dallas Road waterfront near South Turner Street.
Firefighters are investigating the cause of both fires.
