7:45 am* dispatch to end of River Road – property west of Okanagan River (OIB) report of black smoke.
All units cleared at: 8:25 am
Turned out to be a vehicle fire that could only be accessed through Deer Park Estates some miles away. How the vehicle got to that location – a bit of a mystery.
Firefighters had to use a walking bridge to string hose to the other side of river. One first responder stated on the comm channel – “once we have water on it – it won’t last long”.
One pumper sent back to hall. One remains on scene in a clean up capacity.
