Officer tackles fire
A Vernon RCMP officer literally put out a fire Saturday morning.
Shortly before 4:30 a.m., the officer was on patrol in the area of 33rd Street and 30th Avenue when he noticed a fire in a garbage can.
“The member attempted to extinguish the flames with the fire extinguisher from his vehicle, but it kept re-igniting,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk.
Vernon Fire Rescue Services was attended and soaked what was left of the fire to ensure it did not start up again.
There was nobody in the area at the time of this fire.
