Kelowna house erupts in flames
A house near the intersection of Springfield Road and Highway 33 was completely destroyed by a fire on Wednesday afternoon.
At approximately 2:45 p.m., members of the Kelowna Fire Department responded to a house fire at 3364 Springfield Rd.
Three engines, a rescue vehicle, two water tenders and a command vehicle, along with 16 personnel, were on the scene to put out the blaze.
Strong winds and a lack of nearby fire hydrant made it challenging for crews to fight the flames.
The cause of the fire does not appear to be suspicious; however, the fire is still under investigation.
The residents of the house and a pet have been assisted by emergency social services.
