Fire, police and ambulance crews responded to a fire reported between Lakeshore Road and the Foreshore Trail Thursday evening.
The call came in about 6 p.m. March 4, with one fire truck driving partway down the trail adjoining the bird sanctuary in order to access the site, and another stopped at the gate to the trail along with a police vehicle.
Emergency crews also gathered above, on Lakeshore Road.
Staff Sgt. Scott West reported that a man had lit a campfire there. Some of his belongings, which included small petrochemical containers, caught fire. West said quick action by the Salmon Arm Fire Department extinguished the fire with no properties being threatened.
The man escaped without injury and remained on the scene to speak with fire and police crews. No criminal charges are being pursued.
