BBQ catches fire in Kelowna

KELOWNA – Firefighters snuffed out a barbeque fire before it could spread to the house early yesterday evening.

No one was injured and there was no smoke or water damage to the inside of the home, according to a media release from Scott Cronquist, Kelowna Fire Department platoon captain.

Yesterday, April 21, KFR got an emergency call reporting a barbecue fire in the 1200 block of Hartman Road.

Crews quickly extinguished the fire and would like to remind the public to always monitor barbeques while cooking and to keep them cleaned and maintained. 

The homeowner was home at the time of the fire.
