A fire at a storage building on the Mount Paul Industrial Park is being investigated as suspicious.

Crews were called to the building, near the former Sagebrush Downs horse racetrack, just before 4:30 a.m. on Tuesday and arrived to find a steel building on fire.

Kamloops Fire Rescue fire inspector Kevin Cassidy told Kamloops this Week there is evidence, of a broken lock that suggests someone had been in the building prior to the blaze igniting.

“You could say it’s human-caused and suspicious,” he said, noting police have been notified.

Cassidy noted the building was destroyed.

The fire also proved difficult to battle for emergency crews.
