View Royal SUV fire possibly suspicious: police

Evidence at scene prompts RCMP to seize vehicle for further investigation

A vehicle found fully engulfed in flames early Tuesday morning beside a View Royal tire shop may have been the subject of a deliberately set fire.

West Shore RCMP and View Royal firefighters responded just before 1 a.m. to reports of a burning vehicle at Integra Tire on the Island Highway. The vehicle, a silver Isuzu Rodeo, was extinguished by firefighters and later seized for further examination by RCMP.

“Some elements gathered at the scene led investigators to believe the fire was suspicious,” said RCMP Const. Alex Berube. He added police are asking the public to help provide more details about the scene or the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to call West Shore RCMP at 250-474-2264 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
