Williams Lake RCMP say good samaritans made the difference it what could have been a major fire Thursday.
A vehicle crash on the Chimney Valley Road sparked a grass fire that quickly spread due to the dry conditions.
Mounties say that the people who came upon the scene were quick to help out police, BC Wildfire crews and the local fire department put down the fire before it could get worse.
Williams Lake detachment commender Inspector Jeff Pelley offered his thanks and gratitude to those who helped out.
The occupant of the vehicle escaped with minor injuries.
