Fire after stealing fuel

Alanna Kelly

A suspicious fire in West Kelowna at a car wash on Wednesday night appears to be the work of someone trying to steal fuel.

Firefighters rushed to Shine Shop off Old Okanagan Highway just after 7:45 p.m. and found three vehicles burning.

“The fire was beginning to extend into the car wash building,” says Fire Chief Jason Brolund. “Crews quickly knocked down the fire, limiting it to the outside of the building.”

West Kelowna Fire Rescue finished their investigation and determined the fire to be suspicious.

Brolund says the fire appears to have originated in one of the cars.

“Investigators found indications of an attempted theft of fuel present at the scene,” he said.

RCMP have now taken over the investigation.
