Platoon Captain John Kelly, says when crews arrived on scene they discovered fire inside the furnace of the home.
"The damage is contained to the furnace as far as fire goes. The furnace was taken apart to make sure the flames had been extinguished. "
Kelly says crews will work to ventilate the home, but the smoke damage is minimal.
The Kelowna fire department is at a home in the 800 block of Fuller Ave. this morning fighting a hidden fire.
There are no visible flames and the people in the home were able to get out without injury.
The 911 call was made by one of the two females who were in the home at the time. They left the house when smoke started to fill their bedrooms.
The smoke had dissipated when the fire crews arrived shortly before 9 a.m.
The crews were still investigating when all of a sudden smoke started to pour out from the top of the building. It is possible the fire is hidden in the walls or ceiling.
Several people live in the home, but only two females were in the house when the fire started. They were able to get out, but they were not able to find their kitten.
The home is insured, but the two females say they do not have content insurance.
Four fire trucks are on location and Fuller is blocked, to traffic, around the home.
