Suspicious car fire

RCMP are investigating a suspicious early morning car fire.

BX/Swan Lake Fire Chief Bill Wacey said crews were called to L and A Road near Cools Pond at 12:44 a.m. Wednesday.

“I was first on scene and it was fully engulfed. It looks like somebody just kind of stopped on the side of the road, halfway down the road, and walked away,” said Wacey, adding the fire is considered suspicious.

“I was only two minutes away when the (emergency pager) tones went off and it was fully engulfed, so it had been burning for a while,” he said.

Wacey said police attended the scene and are looking into the matter.
