Garage Fire Results In Total Loss

An early morning West Kelowna garage fire resulted in a 'total loss' to the structure and contents.

At approximately 12:36 a.m. on March 24, West Kelowna Fire Rescue responded to a report of a structure fire in the 3500 block of Paynter Road.

"When the first unit arrived they reported that the detached garage was fully involved with flamesextending through the roof," says West Kelowna Fire Department Assistant Chief Darren Lee.

Residents were home at the time of the fire and reported that no one was in the workshop.

"The initial attack crew was able to protect the exposed home, that had already sustained some damage from radiant heat, and safely knock the fire down from the exterior," says Lee.

The garage and several vehicles are considered to be a total loss.

No injuries were reported.

Fire investigators will be conducting a fire cause and origin investigation later this morning.
