Smoke streaming from the roof of a two storey home on Arrowhead Crescent sent Kelowna Fire Department into action Monday.

Upon arrival, at around 2:45 p.m., command confirmed smoke coming from the roof of the Kelowna home and crews entered and found a small fire in the attic above the bathroom, said platoon captain Eric Simpson.

“The fire was knocked down quickly by crews. The fire was contained to the bathroom,” he said.

Forced out of the home were four adults, one  child and a dog.

“The cause of the fire is unknown at this time and fire investigators will be on scene today,” said Simpson, adding that smoke alarms really do save lives.
