Investigators are unsure of the cause of a grass fire that had forest firefighters scrambling to Dashwood Saturday morning.

The blaze, roughly 30 metres by 20 metres in size, was spotted at around 8 a.m. in a wooded area at the top of Boorman Road.

A Forest Service helicopter began ferrying a bambi bucket of water to quench the blaze while a ground attack crew prepared to action the fire from the bottom.

The fire was extinguished and nobody was injured.
