Kiehlbauch said crews went into the overhaul phase to make sure the fire was completely extinguished.

At this time, they don’t have a cause for the fire, Kiehlbauch said. It is not, however, considered suspicious.

The Kelowna Fire Department would like to remind residents to check their smoke detectors to make sure they are functioning properly.
