Family flees Kelowna house fire
A Kelowna family was fortunate to escape from their burning house early this morning.
Shortly before 2 a.m., four residents of a home on Large Avenue were awoken by the sound of crackling noises. Quickly discovering their house was on fire, they managed to flee from the house.
One person was taken to hospital with smoke inhalation. All four will be under the care of Emergency Support Services for the next three days.
Upon arrival at the scene, Kelowna firefighters were confronted with what they called a Type 5 residential two-storey house that had flames and smoke shooting out from the back of the home.
The fire does appear to be suspicious at this time, RCMP will be securing the scene and fire investigators will be on scene in the morning to determine the cause of the fire.
