RCMP are investigating what they believe to be a suspicious vehicle fire that broke Tuesday night in the Kam Lake area.

The Yellowknife Fire Division (YKFD), arrived at a property on Kam Lake Road, extinguishing the blaze – which appeared to have started inside a vehicle parked next to a multi-storey home – just before 7:45 p.m.

The home appeared to have been unscathed by the nearby blaze.

There were no reports of injuries.

Among a tangle of fire hoses leading up to the vehicle, which appeared to be an older model truck, an RCMP member was seen photographing the charred vehicle.

No suspects have been identified at this time, RCMP spokesperson Marie York-Condon told Yellowknifer in an email.
