VERNON — Police say they have about a half dozen officers working on the growing list of suspicious fires around Vernon.

There were two more over the weekend: At an abandoned house in the 38-hundred block of 30th Avenue Saturday night, with damage to the back end, and a 22 foot boat in a compound in the 7000 block of Pleasant Valley Road was destroyed with damage to a second nearby boat, just after midnight this morning.

RCMP say it brings the total of suspicious fires the last few weeks to around 14.

They say officers are still not sure if the cases are linked, as they are spread out around the area, but most have occurred late at night.
