Salmon Arm RCMP is seeking the public’s assistance in order to find a person of interest following a fire in a mobile home park this morning.

"On June 4, just after 6 a.m., Salmon Arm RCMP were called to assist the Salmon Arm Fire Department who were actively engaged in battling a residential structure fire (at Evergreen Mobile Home Park). The blaze had fully engulfed the garage workshop before it could be extinguished by fire crews, who prevented it from spreading to other nearby homes," according to the RCMP in a news release.
