Kelowna fire truck

At approximately 9:00 pm Wednesday evening the Kelowna Fire Dept responded to a structure fire in the 1200 block of Belgo Rd.

First arriving crews reported heavy brown smoke coming out of the eaves of the home on all sides. Home owner stated house was under renovation and that there was nothing and no one inside. Structure was showing that the roof system was failing so decision was made to not have Firefighters enter structure and made a defensive attack strategy from the exterior.

The Kelowna Fire Department responded with 3 engines, 1 rescue unit, 1 tender, 1 safety unit, 1 deputy chief and a command unit, for a total of 17 KFD personnel.

RCMP, BCAS, and Fortis Electric also responded.

There were no injuries.
