UPDATE: Fire inside shed on Cedar Avenue in Kelowna

The blaze was quickly extinguished on Friday afternoon

UPDATE: 4:15 p.m.

Platoon Captain John Kelly says, there was some minor structural damage to the wooden floor in the building and some of the contents were also consumed by the blaze.

“It appeared someone had been using the out building for shelter,” he explained.

The cause of the fire is undetermined at this time and being investigated.


Smoke was seen coming from a garage or shed type building on Cedar Avenue, Friday afternoon.

Fire crews arrived on scene to find a lock had been cut to the building and light smoke was coming from the roof, about 1:20 p.m. A blaze was confirmed inside the building, which firefighters quickly extinguished.

Two fire trucks as well as RCMP responded to the call.

The building has a sign on the front for Notary Tarja K McLean and fire crews are not allowing anyone inside until it is deemed safe.

This same building caught fire back in 2013 after an issue involving working on a new roof.

The cause of this fire is not yet known.
