NARAMATA – A large building is on fire in Naramata and local volunteer firefighters are working to put it out this morning.

Smoke from the blaze could be seen for miles.

The call came in about a structure fire on Gulch Road just after 9 a.m., May 24, according to fire dispatch.

The Naramata fire department is getting help from the fire halls in Penticton, Summerland and Kaleden who sent water tenders and crews because access to water is an issue.

More to come.
