Vernon vehicle fire deemed suspicious

Vernon RCMP are treating an early-morning vehicle fire Monday as suspicious.

Officers were sent to a vehicle fire in the 3000 block of 39A Street shortly after 4 a.m. Monday.

The vehicle, a 1997 Volkswagen GTI, was completely destroyed.

“The registered owner said there was no insurance on the vehicle as he had just purchased it for use in the winter and had not insured it yet,” said Vernon RCMP Cpl. Gerry Kovacs.

“The vehicle was delivered to the home and it had not been driven, so it’s suspicious. Vehicles don’t usually just spontaneously combust.”

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Vernon RCMP at 250-545-7171, or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
