Car fire suspicious

Salmon Arm Fire Department assistant chief, Jim Nickles, says the car was found burning in the forest about 10 to 15 feet off the road

A burned out car has caught the attention of the RCMP.

Salmon Arm Fire Department assistant chief, Jim Nickles, says the car was found burning in the forest about 10 to 15 feet off the road in the 1400 block of 60th Avenue NW.

“There were no plates no occupants; it’s a little suspicious to have a car upside down off the road,” said Nickles, noting the fire department was dispatched at 8:25 a.m. Monday.

“When it went off, we do not know and the cause is unknown,” he said.

“This was going good in amongst the trees.”

Nickles says Hall 3 and 4 responded and quickly extinguished the blaze that destroyed the interior of the 1993 Buick Sentra.

The incident was handed over to the RCMP for further investigation.
