Kelowna Fire Department responded to a home on White Road for a report of a kitchen fire

The Kelowna Fire Department responded with several fire trucks to the Rutland area for a reported kitchen fire this morning.

At least three fire trucks responded to White Road after a call for a kitchen fire.

According to a Capital News reporter on scene, the resident extinguished the fire, which is now under investigation by the Kelowna Fire Department.

Initial reports from the scene said that the family has vacated the home while one person remained inside to douse the flames.

The first fire truck on the scene reported that the fire appeared to be extinguished and may have been electrical in nature, reporting that all people were out of the house.
