Courtenay Fire Dept tackles small wind swept bark mulch blaze

Courtenay Fire crews snuffed out a small bark mulch fire this afternoon near the Driftwood Mall in south Courtenay.

Courtenay Fire Chief Don Bardonnex says the brisk winds presented some challenges for fire crews.

Bardonnex says a discarded cigarette sparked the blaze…and the fire spread very quickly.

Discarded cigarettes have triggered numerous fires on the south coast.
