West Kelowna Fire Rescue aided BC Wildfire Services near Bear Creek Park

A fire which erupted in a RV travel trailer was quickly controlled by fire crews late Thursday night.

Crews from West Kelowna Fire Rescue responded to the fire at the request of BC Wildfire Service to the blaze that was reported just outside the West Kelowna boundary in the area of Bear Creek Forest Service Road.

The fire only spread a small distance from where the RV was into the surrounding forest area. With the fire danger rating increasing, WKFR works along side the BC Wildfire Services more to ensure fires don’t spread.
