Two snowmobiles were destroyed in a utility trailer fire outside of Vernon Saturday morning.

Vernon Fire Rescue Service crews responded to the trailer fire shortly before 8 a.m.

There were four snowmobiles inside. Two were destroyed but the owner removed two of them before the flames got to them.

Vernon Fire Rescue Services report the owner of the sleds was travelling on Highway 97 toward Vernon when they were notified by people passing that the trailer was on fire, which is when the owner pulled over.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
