No one was hurt in a late-night blaze that tore through a Big White chalet outside of Kelowna.
According to Big White fire chief Chris Cormack, the flames started around 1:45 a.m. on Saturday at a home on Porcupine Drive.
Several posts on social media show the fire ripping through the property, nicknamed the “A-Frame” or “The Pharmacy.”
Big White officials said the property was built in the 1970s and was under renovation. No one was living there.
Cormack said a few adjoining homes were damaged.
“It was a stubborn fire, probably took us over four hours to knock down,” he said. “Our priority arriving was to protect the side buildings. Really impressed with the crews in the adverse conditions.”
The A-Frame picked up various eulogies online as the residence was both loved and avoided for its popularity.
The cause is still under investigation.
