A car fire in the North Okanagan on Friday night created quite a spectacle.

And it was a bit shocking for the owner as well.

A viewer video was taken at the scene in Spallumcheen, at Otter Lake Cross Road and Thomas Hayes Road.

When fire crews arrived, a power pole was also involved in the blaze. Apparently, the owner of the Dodge Dart couldn’t start the car after picking up his mail and walked home, only to return to it fully engulfed.

The cause of the blaze is not known, but it’s not considered suspicious.
