West Kelowna Hedge to House Fire Scare
At about 8:30pm Saturday West Kelowna Fire Rescue responded to a report of a structure fire in the 2500 block of Colleen Road in Lakeview Heights.
When crews arrived they found a working fire on the exterior wall and attic space of the residence. The fire had already burned through the exterior wall of the home and had spread into the attic space. Firefighters were able to gain access to the structure and cut of the flames in the attic space.
No injuries to emergency responders or others were reported. Fire damage is limited to the exterior and the attic space and some water damage is present in the main living areas of the home.
Fire investigators were on scene last night to do a fire cause and origin investigation. The cause of the fire is still unknown but it is considered to be suspicious. The West Kelowna RCMP will be taking the lead in the investigation.
