The Kelowna Fire Department responded to a report of a house fire on McKay Ave.
The first arriving engine company reported they had a fully involved detached garage.
The renter (not the owner, as was originally stated by the fire department) was quick to let the crew know there was a grow-op in the garage. Firefighters were able to knock down the flames quickly and contain the fire to the structure.
The garage was a complete loss. There were two occupants in the house; one was complaining of chest pains, he was looked after by BCAS.
Fortis BC Electrical disconnected power while RCMP interviewed occupants.
It is believed the grow-op caused the fire.
Kelowna Fire Department personnel were back on the scene Saturday morning to conduct a secondary investigation and ensure the fire was entirely put out.
