Penticton motel fire

PENTICTON– One person was sent to hospital Tuesday night after fire broke out in a Penticton motel suite.

Witnesses could be heard for blocks urging a man to run from the flames that were pouring out of a second story unit at the Pass Motor Inn on Skaha Lake Road.

A witness tells Global Okanagan that the fire started small in one of the upper suites, it was visible through the window and then grew very quickly.

Three people were evacuated from the two storey structure, one of them was treated in hospital for minor injuries.

Four suites in total were damaged.

Fire investigators will be at the scene in the morning to try and determine a cause.
