Goodbye, 2020: Kelowna fire crews extinguish dumpster fire on New Year’s Eve

Crews quickly knocked down dumpster fire just hours before the new year began

It could be the most appropriate send-off to 2020.

Around 10 p.m. on New Year’s Eve (Dec. 31), Kelowna Fire Department crews responded to a report of a dumpster on fire off Hwy 97 near Costco. When they arrived they discovered a dumpster on fire outside Source Adult shop off Baron Road.

Fire crews were able to knock down the blaze before RCMP arrived on scene to investigate.

A security guard on scene agreed it was a fitting way to say goodbye to the year.
