Fire crews called to morning fire on OKIB land Saturday

Up in smoke

Fire crews were called to a blaze on Okanagan Indian Band land Saturday morning, off Westside Road.

Gord French saw the smoke at 8 a.m. from his home.

French said he believes a transport trailer caught fire, near one of the several "grey market" cannabis shops in the area.

The property is located about one kilometre from the junction of Westside Road and Highway 97.

There is no word on how the fire started or the extent of the damage the blaze has caused.

Castanet will have more information when it becomes available.
