Cause of Kelowna home fire undetermined
Fire officials handed off the investigation into the cause of a Friday night fire to the RCMP.
Assistant fire chief Jason Brolund said Monday that their probe into the cause of a fire in the 300-block of Gerstmar Road was “inconclusive."
“The file has been handed off to the RCMP for any further investigation,” he said.
Fire crews were summoned to the Gerstmar Road home after receiving multiple 911 calls Friday, around 7:30 p.m., about smoke coming from a house.
“The fire was quickly contained to the rear room of the home, which was unoccupied and slated for demolition,” said Brolund.
Damage is estimated at $10,000.
The property was not insured and the structure has been handed over to the owner, who intends to carry out his demolition of the home, Brolund said.
