Kamloops firefighters knocked down a suspicious blaze at an abandoned building on Tuesday night.
Firefighters responded to the burning structure — a former tannery at 755 Mission Flats Rd. — at about 10:20 p.m.
Platoon Capt. Troy Grant said the 14 firefighters who responded quickly extinguished the fire, which burned mostly the exterior and roof of the building.
“Damage is extensive, but it was already quite dilapidated in the first place,” Grant said.
Given the contents found within the building, Grant said it appeared as though some homeless people had been living there, but there was nobody at the building when crews arrived and there were no reported injuries.
As the structure was abandoned, there was no power supplied to the building.
Grant said crews were at the scene on Wednesday, trying to determine the fire’s cause.
