Firefighters hose down the inside of a camper van that caught fire at 1:45 p.m. Monday near Salmon Arm’s Dairy Queen. The driver noticed smoke, coming from underneath the dashboard, pulled over and the engine quickly burst into flames. The fire department responded with nine crew members and managed to extinguish the fire before a propane tank in the back of the van could be ignited. No one was hurt.
