Mobile home fire doused

Firefighters doused a mobile home fire in West Kelowna overnight.

Assistant Fire Chief Brent Watson says West Kelowna Fire Rescue responded just after 11 p.m. Tuesday to a structure fire in the Berkley Estates Mobile Home Park, at 2001 Highway 97 South.

First arriving units found the home's detached garage fully involved in fire, with flames extending into the adjacent home.

Crews extinguished the fire and confirmed that the lone occupant was out of the home safely.

There were no injuries, but both the detached garage and the home suffered significant damage.

The occupant has insurance and is in the care of Emergency Support Services.

RCMP, BC Ambulance paramedics, Fortis BC, BC Hydro also responded to the incident.

The park maintenance manager also assisted on scene, and residents say a neighbour used his garden hose on the fire until firefighters arrived, while another retrieved the owner's dog.
