The Regional District of East Kootenay says Jaffray Fire Department members put out a structure fire at a property on Highway 3/93 by Little Sand Saturday afternoon.
They say the fire was tended to by the landowner until crews arrived.
The blaze was triggered by a pump failure.
Six firefighters responded to the call which came in around 2:00 pm.
The fire is out and isn’t at risk to spread.
The BC Wildfire service also still has the St. Mary River blaze in Wycliffe listed as a fire of note.
They suspect that fire to be human-caused.
