Forest fire season officially started on the island Thursday, and it didn't take long for crews to be called into action.
A water bomber was called to a forest fire just outside Harbour Breton.
The fire covered a small area, measuring about 200 metres by 200 metres.
It burned within a half kilometre of the community, creating a lot of smoke in the area.
Fire crews headed to the area on Thursday evening to start mopping up.
