Firefighters responded to several 911 calls early Saturday as a large tree went up in flames in Kelowna's Pandosy neighbourhood.

Crews arrived about 2:20 a.m. to find a tall tree ablaze on the 600 block of Cadder Avenue.

The tree was close to homes, with multiple exposures including three vehicles, four homes, a camper and numerous outbuildings, says Kelowna Fire Department Platoon Capt. Jarret Dais.

The fire was knocked down quickly, and no injuries were reported.
