The public is being asked to provide tips on the Okanagan Centre wildfire.

A dedicated phone line has been set up to encourage anyone with information to contact police.

“At this time, we are treating this fire as suspicious and believe it to be human caused,” sad Cpl. Dan Moskaluk.

“As is the case with many investigations it is information from the public that solves them.”

The blaze broke out July 15 and numerous homes/buildings were destroyed.

“Resources from Lake Country, Kelowna and the South East District area have been pooled to conduct an in-depth investigation and fully determine the cause of the fire,” said Moskaluk.

Anyone with information about this fire or any suspicious activity in the area, can call 250-707-8025.
