Fire rips through Old Kamloops Road garage

A double-car garage, a few vehicles and a trailer were destroyed in a Sunday night fire on Old Kamloops Road.

The BX Swan Lake Fire Department was called to the blaze in the 8200 block of Old Kamloops Road at 9 p.m.

“I was coming in from Kelowna and I could see the fire from the other side of the (Kal Lake) Lookout,” said BX Swan Lake fire chief Bill Wacey.

“When we got there, it was fully engulfed and going pretty good. There was a good fuel load in here, lots of stuff to burn.”

Fire and police officials were back on-scene Monday investigating the fire, but Wacey said there was nothing to indicate the fire was suspicious in nature.

The homeowner was believed to be in the garage when the fire started, but got out without any injuries.

The garage was detached from the home.

Firefighters battled the blaze for nearly four hours.
