Officials investigate car fire
Vernon Fire Rescue Services are treating an early morning Sunday car fire as suspicious in nature.
Fire and police personnel responded to a report of an older model Pontiac on fire in the 4000 block of 32nd Avenue shortly before 6:30 a.m., but discovered the car was ablaze at a home in the 3900 block close to a shed.
“The fire departmen arrived and contained the fire to the vehicle,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendy. “There are no suspects or witnesses at this time.”
The car was completely destroyed in the fire, and was later towed to a bay where fire inspectors could investigate.
The incident remains under investigation by both fire and police officials.
