Smart meter may be cause of fire
The cause of a small fire that broke out Sunday afternoon at Rosalinda’s Filipino Kitchen in Vernon has been determined to be an electrical short that happened at the base of a smart meter.
Initial estimates peg the amount of damage to be around $25,000 but that number could climb higher.
The restaurant was open at the time of the incident, but there were no injuries and the blaze was quickly attacked by the quick thinking owner with the help of a nearby fire extinguisher.
The restaurant is expected to re-open in a few weeks.
