Beauty salons are often a mecca for drama and gossip, and one in West Kelowna was no exception Wednesday afternoon.
A smoking exhaust fan caused a scene at the Natural Beauty Salon and Spa inside a mini-mall on Dobbin Road.
Firefighters were called at around 1:30 p.m., and managed to put out the smoke and clear the building of any other hazards.
The salon was evacuated.
A witness reporting hearing popping sounds before the fan began to smoke.
