A dog has died after a house caught fire in West Kelowna Wednesday evening.
The blaze started just after 6 p.m. and was witnesses say it was already fully involved when firefighters got to the home on Westside Road in Trader’s Cove.
Wilson Landing Fire chief Don Bennison said it was a stubborn fire, but that crews got the job done.
“Flames were stubborn on the roof, but we kept putting water on it,” said Bennison. “It went out late, there weren’t any issues, and the investigation is getting going.”
Bennison said that the resident’s pet dog may have been lost in the fire, and they won’t know the cause of the fire until the investigation is completed.
The home was largely destroyed by the blaze.
Large fire on the east side of Okanagan Lake, Wilsons Landing. Please stay clear of that area so the crews can access it.#Kelowna
