One apartment unit suffered severe fire and smoke damage after an eight-unit complex caught on fire shortly after 4 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon.

Kelowna firefighters were called to the scene and appeared to limit the fire from spreading from the second floor corner apartment.

The tenant was away at work when the fire broke out, but the other complex residents had to evacuate the building.

The apartment complex is located at the northeast corner of Mill Street and Highway 33 in Rutland.

More details to come.
