Fire breaks out at marijuana grow op

A Rutland house that was operating as a marijuana grow op caught fire last night.

Kelowna firefighters say one person was inside the home in the 400 block of McDonald Road when they arrived to see flames coming from the side of the structure.

The grow op had been dismantled a few days earlier and power to the home had been cut off.

Flames were kept to the attic and rear deck.  

Two residents are in the care of Emergency Social Services.
