The West Kelowna Fire Department was able to stop a car fire in an underground parkade from causing extensive damage to the building. 

Crews were called to 4215 Gellatly Road South just before 6 p.m. on June 21. 

The vehicle was engulfed in flames and heavy black smoke upon arrival. 

The overhead sprinklers activated and helped to contain the blaze until the fire department could extinguish it. 

Residents of the building were evacuated safely and were able to return to their unit once it was deemed safe.
