UPDATE: 12:36 p.m.

A house fire in Glenmore on Apr. 20 appears to have started in a carport.

Just before 9:00 a.m., the Kelowna Fire Department Regional Dispatch Center received reports of a fire in the 1200 block of Mountainview St. By the time emergency crews arrived on scene the fire had spread into the roof. Residents and neighbors were using garden hoses to fight the fire.

Crews were able to quickly contain and extinguish the fire, however, the roof was heavily damaged. Everyone was evacuated from the home safely and there were no injuries to the residents or firefighters. Residents will be out of home until the structure is deemed safe. The cause of the fire is undetermined but not suspicious.

The Kelowna Fire Department (KFD) is on the scene of a house fire in Glenmore.

Emergency crews were called to the intersection of Mountainview Street and Haug Avenue around 9 a.m. Apr. 20.

It’s not clear yet how the fire started, however, the homeowners and their dog are safe.

“It’s comforting to know we live in a neighbourhood that springs into action,” said a neighbour.
