Car fires deemed suspicious

North Okanagan fire crews dealt with two fully engulfed car fires this week, both are being investigated by RCMP.

Early Friday morning crews battled a suspicious car fire on Hwy. 97 and 25 Avenue.

Vernon Deputy Fire Chief Lawrie Skolrood says the fire happened at 2:30 a.m.

“Our crews determined that it was a suspicious fire and it was turned over to the RCMP as the car was involved in a high speed pursuit in Enderby,” explained Skolrood.

The car was found just in front of Polson Park.

A couple days earlier on Wednesday April 9 just after 6 p.m. a 1992 Honda Civic burst into flames on North Okanagan First Nations land, located in the 6900 block of Tronson Road.

“We went and put out the fire and the investigation is now left to the RCMP regarding cause,” said Skolrood.
