Residents displaced by the Rutland apartment fire may be able to get into the building as early as Tuesday.

The information came out during the City of Kelowna’s Quarterly Report, delivered by deputy city manager Paul Macklem during Monday afternoon’s council meeting.

Macklem attended a meeting for building residents held Sunday and said the owner of the building believes he can accommodate all of the residents whose homes were destroyed in other buildings he owns.

There are 16 apartments which will have to be gutted and renovated before they are inhabitable again.
