A fire at an auto wrecking yard in the South Okanagan has damaged a lot of tools.

The Oliver fire department responded to a blaze at 89th Street just after 7 p.m. Monday.

“We are still investigating the cause of the fire,” says Janzen.

He says the damage is estimated between $25,000 and $30,000.

Janzen says the property owner had no insurance.
