RCMP and the West Kelowna Fire Department are investigating what appears to have been an arson  in a West Kelowna restaurant.

The West Kelowna RCMP were advised Oct. 12 at 1:59 a.m., of a commercial alarm at the Thai Fusion restaurant located at 3041 Louie Drive.

Emergency crews arrived on scene to find the business had been broken into and its sprinklers expelling water as the interior fire suppression system had been triggered.

RCMP continue their investigation into what appears to be the latest targeted attack against this local business, said Const. Jesse O’Donaghey.

Investigators encourage anyone with any information to come forward or call Crime Stoppers, you may have a key piece of information.

This is not the first time Thai Fusion has been the victim of property crime. It’s been closed multiple times this year after the glass out front was broken. It is again closed as they attempt to fix the damage.

The scene, which has sustained extensive damage mainly due to water, has been secured by the RCMP. Fire investigators with both the RCMP and West Kelowna Fire Department plan to attend and examine the scene, along with the RCMP’s Integrated Forensic Identification Section (IFIS).

Anyone with any information is urged to contact the West Kelowna RCMP at 250-768-2880. Or remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, leaving a tip online at www.crimestoppers.net or by texting your tip to CRIMES (274637) ktown.
