Small fire on Okanagan Lake

Fire on Okanagan Lake

There was a fire on Okanagan Lake this afternoon just off the shore of Rotary Beach on Lakeshore Road.

Castanet received a news tip just after 4:00 p.m. that there was potentially a boat and dock up in flames.

On scene, several onlookers told Castanet that was not the case, with the Kelowna Fire Department later confirming a jerry can had somehow caught fire near the dock.

The fire department had their MR2 squad ready, but was cancelled once the crew arrived by truck.

No injuries occurred and people remained on the beach enjoying the weather.
