Arsonist in Vernon?
Updated: Apr 5
Investigators have determined that a tire fire Sunday evening was suspicious.
The fire occurred in Vernon between the Canadian Tire and Kal Tires Anderson Way location. It was first reported just after 9:30 PM on Sunday evening.
The Vernon Fire Rescue Service quickly extinguished the flames but remained on location to mop up until shortly before midnight.
During the cleanup, some of the fire crews were called to an unrelated fire a short distance away.
A call to 911 around 11 PM reported two people described as 'transients' were setting fire to cardboard behind a business in the 4800 block of Anderson Way.
That fire was quickly extinguished.
It was a busy night for firefighters.
