Victoria firefighters were called to a fire at Beacon Hill Park around 4:30pm, Wednesday. The fire was between the petting zoo and totem pole, near the Dallas Road border of the park.

The fire was about an acre in size when firefighters arrived, they were able to put it out in less than five minutes.  Witnesses tell CHEK News, it could have scorched a much bigger area if not for the quick response of firefighters.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
