PENTICTON - Last night a mobile home was destoyed by a fire near Highway 97.

Crews from Penticton Indian Band Fire Department and Penticton Fire Department rushed to extinguish the flames at Riva Ridge Mobile Home Park last night, Dec. 21, at about 7:44 p.m.

Captain Rob Trupp with Penticton Fire Department says one male occupant left the mobile home with burn injuries. He was taken to hospital.
