A witness told police two males set fire to the vehicle, which was parked and empty at the time. Both suspects are about six feet tall. One was wearing a white hoodie with the hood pulled up over his head and the other was wearing a red hoody, also with the hood pulled up.

After starting the fire, the pair ran down the alley and appeared to have jumped into a vehicle that was then driven away.

The vehicle fire was extinguished by Kamloops firefighters. No injuries were reported.

Police are asking that anyone with any information about the fire or the suspects to contact Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
