Two men driving by an auto detailing shop on the 2000 block of Old Okanagan Highway noticed a truck on fire and called 911 on the evening of January 30th.  Multiple fire trucks arrived on scene to the rapidly growing fire that had spread to four vehicles and slightly to the building.  Investigators deem the fire as suspicious as it may have been a fuel theft gone awry.  If you have any information on this fire, please contact West Kelowna RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
