Trailer burns to the ground

UPDATE: 12:10 p.m.

Okanagan Indian Band communications officer Nick Nilsen says OKIB firefighters were not dispatched to an early morning that reduced a trailer to ashes.

Neighbours believe the fire to be suspicious, as the trailer had been empty for years.


ORIGINAL: noon

An apparently abandoned RV burned to the ground off Westside Road early Thursday.

The trailer was reduced to a smouldering frame and ashes after the fire began about 4 a.m., according to residents of the area.

The fire scene was about seven kilometres from the north end of Westside Road, on Okanagan Indian Band land.

According to neighbours, no one has lived in the trailer for years.

It's not yet known what caused the fire or if anyone was injured in the incident.

Castanet has reached out to the OKIB for more information.
