Naramata Fire Department was called to reports of a flaming tractor in the middle of an orchard yesterday (June 9) around 11 a.m.

The fire is believed to have started due to electrical problems, said Naramata fire chief Tony Trovao.

Naramata Fire Department was able to quickly extinguish the fire in what Trovao called a “pretty routine” call.

No injuries were reported.
