Crews from Kamloops Fire Rescue and Tk'emlúps te Secwepemc are currently fighting a grass fire on the east side of the North Thompson River near the confluence.
Tk'emlúps te Secwepemc councillor Thomas Blank was on hand to speak to local media outlets.
Kamloops Fire Rescue has been on scene since 11:15 a.m., and as of noon, said much of it has been knocked down.
Fire crews put down wet lines along flanks of the fire, but were initially concerned over wind pushing it back toward reserve land.
As of 12:45 p.m. on Wednesday, KFR crews were in the mop-up stages of the blaze, pumping water from the North Thompson to extinguish what remained.
By 1 p.m., the fire appeared to be extinguished.
Recent fire activity, which is not unusual for this time of year as fuels dry out in the spring, has been seen around Kamloops.
The Kamloops Fire Centre has nine active fires, eight of which are under control. Most have been small, but one east of Merritt has grown to 840 hectares and is currently listed by the BC Wildfire Service as out of control.
