KELOWNA - Kelowna RCMP and fire department investigators are looking into a suspicious fire that devoured two cars and charred a nearby house late Friday night.

According to a press release, the Kelowna Fire Department called the Kelowna RCMP for help with a vehicle fire on the 4300 block of Takla Road on June 28 at 11:47 p.m. Police arrived at the scene to find a Ford Focus sedan and a Dodge D150 pickup truck destroyed by a fire which also damaged a nearby residence.
