Penticton firefighters put out a kitchen fire at a home on Duncan Place yesterday evening.

Penticton Fire Department deputy chief Rob Trupp says the department was called to a three alarm blaze around 7 p.m. yesterday, Jan. 26.

Trupp says the fire started in the kitchen as a result of a cooking incident and damaged nearby floors and cupboards, in addition to causing smoke damage throughout the house.

Emergency services looked after the occupants, who will be relocated until repairs to the home can be made.

One person suffered from smoke inhalation.
