Kootenay Boundary firefighters were stretched across the valley on Wednesday afternoon after being called to two fires within minutes of each other.
The first was the call to a vehicle fire at Trail Walmart the afternoon of Sept. 30 at 1:45 p.m.
Captain Rick Morris reports a crew from Station 374 Trail was on site in eight minutes and quickly had the scene under control.
Within four minutes and while responding to the vehicle fire, a second call came in from a residence on Kootenay Avenue in Tadanac.
In that situation a lawnmower had caught fire.
Morris says the Tadanac fire was extinguished within minutes and one person was treated for a minor burn injury.
