Other members of the public tried to extinguish the fire.

The RCMP has deemed the fire suspicious as there was no obvious cause or source of ignition.

It has thanked the Sparwood Fire Department and members of the public for their assistance in this incident.

Anyone who may witnessed the fire is encouraged to contact the RCMP at (250) 425-6233 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
