The Summerland Fire Department was called to an early morning blaze on Monday (May 14), which has left six people displaced and three RVs destroyed at the Illahie Beach Campground near Summerland, British Columbia, Radio 1150, Kelowna, reported.

Fire Chief Glen Noble says by the time crews arrived at the Illahie Beach Campground, located 120 miles east of Vancouver, it was too late to save the RVs.

“When we arrived, we had one structure fully involved and fire spreading to two adjacent RVs as well. So the guys fairly quickly got the fires under control but there’s significant damage to all three units. We’ve had the provincial gas inspector as well as the provincial electrical inspectors helping us with our investigation and at this time no cause has been determined.”

There were no injuries but all three units have been destroyed.

Inspectors that were on scene Monday afternoon don’t believe the fire was suspicious.
