Salmon Arm Crews Douse Morning Car Fire

Members of Salmon Arm's Fire Department were tasked with a vehicle fire on Wednesday morning.

Fire Prevention Officer Jim Nickles has details on the call that brought crews to 8th Avenue NE "He tried starting it up, just like he would any other day, and it caught on fire under the hood. Our crews responded fairly quickly, and put the fire out."

He says that most of the damage to the vehicle was under the hood, and that it's likely now a write-off.

Nickles says that the vehicle's owner and fire staff were able to escape any injury.
