Fire at Boyds Autobody and Glass considered arson by Kelowna Mounties

Kelowna Mounties looking for alleged arsonist that sparked fires at industrial buildings.

Two fires sparked in the early hours of April 10 are shaping up to look a lot like arson, prompting Mounties to issue a call for witness information.

The alleged firebug came to the attention of the Kelowna Fire Department at 2:50 a.m., Friday, at Boyds Autobody and Glass, located in the 1900 block of Dayton Street.
