Another fire strikes Keremeos

There has been another structure fire in Keremeos.

The latest blaze broke out early Monday morning near the intersection of 7th Avenue and 6th Street.

It tore through an older building that sat between the government liquor store and Berg’s Ox Yoke collectables, both of which suffered smoke damage.

According to the Keremeos Fire Department, the fire proved difficult to attack as it got into the attic space of the building, which had to be demolished.

There were no injuries and the cause of the fire had yet to be determined, but it is not believed to be suspicious.

An earlier fire broke out Saturday night at the Riverbed Bistro, causing extensive damage to the top floor of the building.
