Vernon vehicle fire under investigation

Firefighters were called to a half-ton truck engulfed by flames on Rising Way, off of Bella Vista Road.

Authorities are investigating another vehicle fire in Vernon.

On Monday at about 9:25 p.m., the Vernon Fire Department was called to a half-ton truck engulfed by flames on Rising Way, off of Bella Vista Road.

“It’s obviously suspicious because it (truck) has been sitting there for some time,” said Lawrie Skolrood, deputy fire chief.

The RCMP are involved in the investigation.

This latest incident comes after three vehicles were destroyed by fire Oct. 14 on Davison Road, off of Bella Vista Road.

The Oct. 14 fire has been declared suspicious.

“We don’t have any reason to believe we have an arsonist targeting vehicles,” said Const. Jocelyn Noseworthy, with the RCMP.
