Fire deemed suspicious

UPDATE: Thursday 10 a.m.

A three-vehicle fire in Vernon's Bella Vista area is being called suspicious.

Fire Chief Keith Green said the blaze, which started just before 4 a.m. Wednesday, on the 3000 block of Davison Road, was “in an obscure location.”

The three vehicles were in an orchard and were completely destroyed.

“Someone would have gone out of their way if it was human caused," he said.

Green said an investigation has failed to find any reason for the vehicles to catch fire.

“It's suspicious, but we haven't identified a cause,” he said.
