Colwood Fire Rescue was called to a suspicious fire early Tuesday morning. Crews arrived to find a single vehicle fully engulfed on Metchosin Road near the Farhill Road intersection at roughly 4:40 a.m.
“That vehicle was totally destroyed,” said Chief Kerry Smith.
Smith said they are treating the fire as suspicious and began an initial investigation. He added that investigation has now been turned over to the West Shore RCMP.
The local detachment confirmed they are treating the case as suspicious and are continuing to investigate.
Colwood Fire also responded to two other calls earlier in the week relating to motor vehicle incidents.
The first was a single vehicle incident at roughly 5 a.m. Monday on Sooke Road near Colwood Corners.
Crews also were called to a vehicle that struck a pedestrian light standard outside of Sangster elementary school at around 11 that same morning.
