Abstract: We show that within the class of metric $ \sigma $-compact spaces, proper fine homotopy equivalences preserve property $ C$, which is a slight generalization of countable dimensionality. We also give an example of an open fine homotopy equivalence of a countable dimensional space onto a space containing the Hilbert cube.
