Around 2:20 p.m., firefighters were being known as to Steamer Landing Park. Less than five minutes afterwards, an motor, medic device, battalion chief and the Fire Marshal arrived at the scene.
Immediately after firefighters learned what was described as thick plumes of smoke and flames pushed by the wind, additional units were called to the park.
Firefighters explained ahead development was stopped within 25 minutes, with about two acres burned.
No injuries were claimed and there ended up no buildings in close proximity to the fireplace perimeter.
