Police Seek Person of Interest in Suspected Arson

Kelowna RCMP are hoping to speak to a person of interest in what is now being considered a potential arson.

Just before 6:00 AM on Thursday morning, emergency crews responded to a report of a garbage fire in the alley behind the Vancouver Career College on Pandosy Street.

They were able to extinguish the blaze, although at one point it got so big that it did some damage to the back wall of the building.

Upon investigating, RCMP found signs of arson.

The person of interest, reportedly seen at the site of the fire around the time it was reported, was described as a woman wearing a hoodie and carrying two bags, one of them being a duffle bag.

Anyone with more information is asked to call the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300 or remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
