One person was taken to the hospital after a fire ripped through a house on Penticton Indian Band land late Friday night.

The Penticton Fire Department were dispatched to the fire on Bread Hollow on Penticton Indian Band Land at 7:34 p.m. on March 6. The Penticton Indian Band Fire Department also responded to the blaze.

An individual at the scene was attended to by Emergency Health Services and taken to the hospital with minor, non-life-threatening injuries from the scene.

“I don’t believe there were any significant injuries from the fire itself,” said Dawn Russell, the Penticton Indian Band communications director.

The fire burned through the home, but the full extent of the damage to the structure is still under investigation.

Penticton RCMP also attended the scene, and the cause of the fire is currently under investigation. It is not known at this time whether the fire is suspicious or not.
