A fire that destroyed an RV trailer and severely damaged a nearby garage at a residence located at the 600 block of Gerstmar Road early Friday morning (April 23) has been deemed suspicious.
At 2:30 a.m., the Kelowna Fire Department responded to reports of a five-wheel trailer on fire. The fire extended to a nearby garage, and the response was later labeled as a second alarm structure fire response.
Firefighters put out both fires and were able to prevent the flames from reaching the home, which housed four tenants and a dog. All occupants made it safely out of the residence.
Both Kelowna RCMP and the fire department are now investigating the cause of the fire.
