Shed fire causes vehicle damage

A motorcycle, Ford Mustang and a camper were victims of a fire in West Vernon Sunday afternoon

A motorcycle, Ford Mustang and a camper were victims of a fire in West Vernon Sunday afternoon.

Vernon Fire Rescue Services was called to a report of a fire in the 4200 block of 27th Avenue shortly before 2 p.m.

“When we got there, we discovered a plastic garden shed on fire,” said deputy fire chief Jack Blair.

“The fire appears to have started in or near the shed.”

The fire got going quite well, said Blair, and caused extensive exposure damage to a late-model Ford Mustang and to a camper. Both were parked behind the shed. Both are expected to be write-offs.

A motorcycle inside the shed was a total loss.

The cause of the fire is unknown, and Blair said it remains under investigation.
