Grass fire threatens two West Kelowna homes

UPDATE 12:36 p.m.

West Kelowna firefighters worked quickly to knockdown a blaze that ignited just off of Lower Glendosa Road.

Two homes were threatened in the area, but firefighters were able to take position to protect the residences. Some minor damage to one of the home’s fence and trailer was caused by the fire, but no other injuries or damage.

“Crews continue to mop up hot spots, we don’t expect the fire to spread any more at all,” said West Kelowna fire cheif Jason Brolund.

Brolund said that BC Wildfire and Peachland Fire Department helped with the suppression of the fire with Peachland providing a water tender, a large truck filled with water, as there were no fire hydrants in the area of the blaze.
