A Kelowna man is in custody after allegedly lighting a camper on fire late last night.

Emergency crews responded to a suspicious fire on the 2200 block of Burtch Road, March 29  at 11:30 p.m.

“A camper on the property was on fire and causing damage to a motorhome parked beside it,” said Const. Kris Clark.
