Firefighters put out balcony fire

A Kelowna man received minor burns after a fire broke out on an apartment balcony.

Firefighters were called to the building in the 100 block of Gerstmar Road at 2:00am this morning.

Fire crews quickly isolated the fire to the exterior of the one unit, although some damage extended to the balcony above.

A male occupant was checked over for minor burns and two children were checked for smoke inhalation, although no one had to be taken to hospital. 

The cause will be investigated today.
