White Rd. house up in flames

A White Road boarding house in Rutland was severely damaged by a fire that occurred at 4:15 a.m. on Wednesday.

The Kelowna Fire Department dispatched three fire engines, one rescue truck and two command vehicles along with 19 firefighters to fight the blaz.

While dealing with heavy smoke, the fire department determined that no one occupied the house at the time, and that is was no longer being used as a boarding house. The cause of the fire is under investigation and no damage estimate had been given as of Wednesday afternoon.
