An early morning fire has gutted the Pavilion Building in Kelowna’s City Park.

The building, which in the past has housed several restaurants, was being used by the city as office space for its design and construction services department.

It also had a food concession and public washrooms for the park located on its ground floor.

The fire is believed to have broken out around 4:30 a.m. and as fire crews fought the blaze, flames were reportedly shooting 15 metres into the air.

The fire damage appears to have destroyed the building, which is located in the centre of the park, overlooking the Okanagan Lake.

No injuries were reported as a result of the blaze and the investigation into how he fire started is continuing.
