An abandoned Kelowna house slated for demolition went up in flames Monday.

It was familiar territory for the local fire department, which was called to another fire at the same house just one week earlier, on Dec. 13. That fire was deemed suspicious.

The building has been approved for demolition by Saba Construction, according to City of Kelowna documents.
