OSOYOOS - Occupants of a small cabin are back in their residence following a fire in Osoyoos yesterday.

Osoyoos Fire Department Fire Chief Rick Jones says the department responded to a call for a structure fire on 100 Avenue just after 10 p.m. last night, Nov. 9.

An improperly installed wood stove caught fire, causing some damage to the cabin floor.

Firefighters were able to put the fire out quickly. The two occupants in the cabin were not injured.

"The building was constructed in sections and there was only damage to one section. The residents were able to return to the cabin later in the evening,” Jones said, adding in his opinion the chimney wasn’t installed correctly.
