A local woman was quick to respond in dousing a small fire in a utility trailer filled with yard waste that was left in a strip mall parking lot overnight.
On Tuesday night at 9:01 p.m., the Kelowna RCMP responded to a report of a utility trailer which was on fire in the parking lot of a fast food restaurant located in the 100 block of Hollywood Road North.
Police say a passerby on Highway 33 spotted the fire and quickly jumped into action. The Kelowna woman ran inside the restaurant, alerted staff to the fire and took a fire extinguisher to douse the small blaze.
The small fire, which was in the rear corner of the trailer caused damage to the tarp covering the load and the rear brake light housing. The small four-oot utility trailer was not attached to any vehicles, and the fire was extinguished before it spread.
Police have been told that a few youths associated to a small white car were observed leaving the area when the woman arrived to extinguish the fire. There were also a few youths associated to a dark coloured pick-up truck in the area at the time.
