Kelowna fire crews quickly extinguished a car shed in flames on Thursday morning (May 27) in Rutland.
Three residents were inside the house when the shed caught fire, but they said they weren’t sure how the fire started.
“Either it was an accident with my car or someone torched it,” one of the residents said.
The fire, fortunately, did not spread to the house and the residents were safe, as were their two cats.
