A mobile home on Boucherie Road in West Kelowna was destroyed by fire on Saturday morning.

A mobile home in the 1800 block of Boucherie Road is considered to be a total loss following a fire early Saturday morning in West Kelowna.

When West Kelowna Fire Rescue arrived on the scene, heavy flames were venting from several windows at the rear of the home.

No one was home at the time of the fire.

Firefighters worked for several hours to suppress the remaining fire and extinguish hot spots.

While the fire didn’t spread to any neighbouring homes, several outbuildings were damaged by the heat. The home received significant fire and smoke damage throughout.

A single Engine crew remained on-scene overnight to monitor for hot spots.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
