Vernon Fire Department

Another suspicious fire early this morning in Vernon.

Just before 1 a.m. the Vernon Fire department responded to a fire call in the 47 hundred block of 27 Street.

A pile of tires had been set on fire at back of Peter’s Tirecraft store.

Flames were higher than the roof of the nearby buildings and the fire was emitting a thick plume of black smoke.

Luckily the tires were far enough away from any nearby structures.

This is the 19th suspicious fire in Vernon in the past few weeks.

Vernon Fire department and RCMP are investigating this latest fire.
