Firefighters had to battle a blaze at an abandoned home in the 200 block of Valleyview Road on Sept. 14.
Black smoke was reported coming from the home in Rutland just before 11a.m. Emergency crews, including three fire engines, were forced to kick in the door to gain access.
Fortis BC has also been called to the scene.
Reports from emergency services said that the fire was knocked down by about 11:30.
A neighbouring property manager told Capital News that there has been a problem with squatting on the property before.
