RCMP are investigating a vehicle fire that occurred early this morning on Osoyoos Indian Band land.
“There was a truck in the bushes off the road that was on fire creating a lot of black smoke … we were able to extinguish it and everyone was off the scene in about an hour,” said Rob Graham, Oliver Fire Department media spokesperson.
Graham said the vehicle was located on Black Sage Road and NkMip Road in a somewhat remote area where not too many homes are located.
“It is considered suspicious and RCMP were called to investigate. I am sure they will be looking for the owner of the truck,” said Graham, of the fire that occurred around 6:15 a.m.
