More details are known about the July 9 fire that destroyed the grandstand at Vernon's Kin Race Track.

Investigators have ruled out the cause as electrical.

"Their investigation had determined that the cause of the fire to the structure was arson," said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesperson.

"Investigators are not releasing details around their investigation at this time as they do not want to compromise their investigation and provide evidentiary information that would be presented if this case goes to court."
