There were at leave five break ins in Lake Country over last week.

Kelowna fire crews got a Saturday afternoon callout to a bbq.
Unfortunately not for the food but for the back of a house being on fire in the 12 hundred block of Hartman Road.
The burn was quickly put out and it didn’t extend in to the house.

The fire department did want to mention…don’t leave your bbq unattended when cooking and make sure it’s clean and in good working order.
This will be the last week of open burning in the valley.
