Update: 6:01 p.m. Assistant Fire Chief Lou Wilde told reporters that the fire in 1537 Pinehurst Crescent was largely confined to the outside of the house in the balcony area. Wilde said the first crew on the scene pulled a woman out of the house. A firefighter could be seen treating the woman with oxygen in front of the house. She was taken to Kelowna General Hospital by B.C. Ambulance, suffering from suspected smoke inhalation.

Engines 1, 2, and 3 responded to the fire with 18 firefighters. Wilde said the house was habitable but that the owners were making plans to stay elsewhere for the weekend.
