Early morning fires
Tuesday a busy morning for the Penticton Fire Department. At 4:48 a.m., a family of three (along with three cats) was lucky to escape from their unit after a deck at 320 Brunswick Street caught fire. Smoking may have been the cause of the fire. At 7:15 a.m., firefighters were called to a duplex fire at 640 Haywood Ave. It’s believed the fire started under a stairway and then caught siding and garbage cans.
