RCMP investigate possible arson in West Kelowna

An RCMP investigation into a house fire in West Kelowna is evolving.

Back on March 26, West Kelowna firefighters were called to the house at 1191 Peak Point Drive at about 2 am, where they found an empty home on fire.

West Kelowna Fire Rescue has confirmed that the RCMP were brought into the investigation after that initial fire.

Firefighters were then called back to the same home just after 5:00 this morning (Fri.) for another fire.

The home was empty once again, as it had been boarded up from the last fire.

In a statement, West Kelowna RCMP confirm they believe both fires were targeted and set on purpose, and are asking anyone who may have seen anything suspicious to contact them.
