A brush fire on the West Shore kept fire crews busy and caused some traffic tie ups on Sooke Road Monday afternoon.   

Langford Fire say the brush fire was the result of some power lines coming down in the area of Sooke Rd and West Shore Parkway.  Luckily there were no injuries or property damage as the fire covered an area containing a construction site. 

Four fire departments---Langford, Colwood, View Royal and Metchosin were able to contain the blaze and remained on site to ensure embers from the fire didn't spread.
