An unoccupied building on Highway 33 in Kelowna suffered major fire damage early Wednesday after a blaze broke out inside and flames found their way into the attic.
According to the Kelowna Fire Department, at approximately 02:58 a.m. firefighters received a 911 call from a security employee reporting smoke coming from the structure in the Rutland area.
When fire crews arrived on scene, they saw heavy smoke billowing from the building at 150 Highway 33 West.
After entering the building and extinguished the fire that they found inside, an extensive overhaul found the fire had extended into the attic.
After the fire was out, the KFD said the building suffered major damage.
The cause of the blaze had not been determined as of midday Wednesday and investigators continue to probe the scene.
The fire department responded with three engines, a rescue vehicle, a command unit and a safety vehicle along with 19 firefighters.
