KELOWNA, B.C. – Flames coming from a storage container behind a locked worked yard proved difficult for fire fighters to douse.
The Kelowna Fire Department was called to 140 Adams Road Tuesday around 6:30 p.m. for flames coming out of a two closed steel storage box.
The fire spread to several other storage containers and vehicles before flames were brought under control.
A motorhome and tractor trailer were also damaged.
One man, an on-site security officer, was taken to hospital for smoke inhalation.
Crews had a hard time accessing the fire because it was behind a locked fence. Fire fighters were forced to cut the fence to gain access.
There’s no word on what started the blaze.
