Vernon and North Okanagan
Oct 15, 2012 / 12:00 pm
A fire which ripped through a shed early Saturday morning is being termed suspicious.
While the cause of the fire is still under investigation, Vernon RCMP confirm this was the same shed that caught fire earlier this year.
Several people were inside at the time of the first blaze, but all successfully managed to get out safely.
The shed was empty when the second fire started.
On October 13 at approximately 3:40 a.m. a police dog on regular patrol noticed smoke coming from 3005 41 Avenue behind the Sandman Inn.
Vernon Fire Department arrived on scene, and because there was fear the nearby Sandman Inn might ignite, the south wing was evacuated as a precaution.
Fortunately the fire was contained to the shed and a nearby car, both of which were destroyed.
