A West Kelowna home was severely damaged overnight, in a fire that broke out on a sundeck.

West Kelowna Fire Rescue responded to a single-family structure fire in the 2600 block of Boucherie Road and found heavy fire involvement on the upper sundeck that quickly extended into the deck roof, attic space, and main living area, Assistant West Kelowna Fire Chief Chad Gartrell said in a press release

"Crews did an excellent job knocking the fire down with large diameter hand lines prior to making entry into the structure to complete a primary search and conduct fire control operations," he said.

"The family was at home at the time of the fire and all residents and pets made it out safely."

WKFR’s fire investigator was on the scene, due to the extent of damage the fire cause is undetermined and not deemed suspicious in nature.
