Salmon Arm firefighters are responding to reports of a structure fire in the 2200 block of Fifth Avenue NE, in the Orchard Grove Gardens condo complex.
Reports say a call came in saying smoke was coming from the bedroom of a residence. Four fire trucks were on scene to investigate.
Fire crews on scene are reported to have found a small fire in a bedroom producing smoke and began to ventilate the building to clear the air.
Fire Chief Brad Shirley said in an email to the Observer that crews from halls two and three were dispatched at approximately 11:12 a.m. to find smoke showing from a the second story of the building. He adds that one resident of the building was checked by B.C. Ambulance Service members for minor smoke inhalation issues, but was released at the scene.
Early stages of the investigation into the fire show that it was likely caused by electrical issues, Shirley says.
