Fire rips through shed on Pacific Avenue.

Flames pouring from a Pacific Avenue shed that was seemingly housing someone and had Kelowna Fire Department busy Tuesday afternoon.

Kelowna Fire Dispatch center received a 911 call at 11:26 a.m. and the crew members who got their first quickly knocked down the flames and began venting.

“Fire was contained to the structure and contents inside,” said Kelly Stephens, platoon captain with the Kelowna Fire Department.

“The structure was boarded up but appears someone was living inside. Nobody was found inside and there were no injuries at the scene.”

No immediate cause could be found so Kelowna fire and RCMP investigators were on scene Tuesday to determine the cause.
