Perhaps it was a Hallowe’en prank, but residents at Altura Road weren’t laughing when they were awoken around 1:00 a.m. to a burning hedge outside their bedroom windows. A neighbour spotted the flaming bush and alerted the sleeping family, who have an infant child. Kelowna Fire Department was able to extinguish the blaze before it spread to the home. Damage to the property is estimated at $3,000 - $5,000.
