The Heart’s Content Barrens on the Avalon Peninsula was closed for a time on Thursday.

RCMP from the Trinity-Conception Detachment closed the road leading out of Victoria.

The fire originated in a small pit.

Dry conditions combined with strong wind caused the fire to spread into the brush.

A water bomber was called in to take down the fire.

There is a fire ban in place.
