Kelowna RCMP fire investigators continue to look for answers after a potentially deadly blaze destroyed several vehicles parked outside a Pandosy Street apartment building on November 14th at approximately 4:20 a.m.   Ten vehicles under a carport were fully engulfed in flames, gutting an exterior parkade and causing significant damage to the exterior of a 6 story apartment building, displacing over 100 people from their homes.  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 have canvassed for video surveillance in the area and ask that if you have surveillance footage from that time to review it and notify police if you see anything suspicious. If you have any information on this arson please send a tip to Crime Stoppers or contact Cst Kevin Hamilton at the Kelowna Detachment.
