    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Capital City Fire Rescue (CCFR) received a report of a grass fire behind Wren Drive and past the River Road trail on Saturday.

    The fire was reported to be around 3-4 acres.

    It was inaccessible for CCFR crews to go find and try to put it out.

    The TEMSCO helicopter company worked with CCFR in putting the fire out by using their water bags to drop water on the fire.

    TEMSCO used the river to fill their water bucket.

    CCFR wrote on their Facebook Saturday that they don't know for sure what caused the fire, and they thanked TEMSCO for helping the community of Juneau.
