Vernon firefighters responded to a dumpster fire behind the Shops at Polson Park.
Vernon North Okanagan RCMP were also on scene as there were reports that the shopping centre was on fire. But the blaze was contained to the cardboard recycling bin.
Crews were dispatched just after 2:20 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 20, 2021 to the Highway 6 centre, which backs onto Polson Park.
The container was one of several that have suffered fires in the past, as evident by their charcoal lids.
