Police still investigating Saturday's vehicle fire downtown
Police continue to investigate a truck fire that damaged the local Cadet Hall Saturday afternoon.
“We’re still looking into what would have caused that,”said RCMP Sgt. Laurel Mathew. “The RCMP continue to investigate the matter, which has been deemed as suspicious in nature.
“There was substantial damage done to the truck, which is a 1995 Chev pick up truck, and some damage done to the adjacent building. Police are speaking to witnesses, but encourage any other persons with information on this matter to call them at (250)365-7721, or Crimestoppers at 1-800-722-TIPS.”
Fire chief Gerry Rempel said the fire was in the 200 block of 8 Avenue, and the truck was unoccupied at the time of the blaze.
Resident reports of explosions were the tires blowing, which Rempel said is normal in a vehicle fire.
No one was injured.
