KAMLOOPS - Local firefighters quickly knocked down a fire at a North Shore home early this morning, April 8, after residents awoke to smoke coming from their deck.

Hall says the upper floor of the home was "significantly damaged" in the blaze.

While investigators have not determined what caused it, they have ruled the incident is not suspicious.

RCMP Cpl. Jodi Shelkie confirms the file remains with Kamloops Fire Rescue.
