Kelowna RCMP fire investigators are looking for answers after a blaze destroyed several vehicles parked outside a Pandosy Street apartment building.  RCMP were called to assist the Kelowna Fire Department at 4:20 a.m. on November 14th where approximately 10 vehicles under a carport were fully engulfed in flames.  Police helped to evacuate the nearby building.   Video surveillance has been released that shows an individual on a bicycle who seems to light a vehicle with an accelerant.  The jacket of the suspect appears to have a lighter coloured panel across the back.  Police are asking if gas station staff in the area could review their surveillance video to see if there were any purchases by individuals arriving on foot or bicycle around that time period.  If you have any information on this arson please send a tip to Crime Stoppers or contact Cst Nathan Nickel at the Kelowna Detachment.
