KELOWNA — Kelowna Fire Rescue extinguished a house fire in Kelowna yesterday evening.

Fire crews received the call to a house fire in the 400 block of Taylor Road at about 6:15 p.m. yesterday, March 23, a media release says.

Initial crews were able to get into the house and quench the blaze. They then did a complete overhaul and checked for any more signs of fire.

Four people were displaced from the home; they are now being assisted by Emergency Support Services.

No one was injured in the fire.

The cause of the fire is not deemed suspicious.

Kelowna Fire Rescue responded with four engines, a command unit, a rescue truck, and a safety vehicle along with 18 firefighters.

"Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarms save lives, remember to check the batteries on a regular basis," the release says.
