An early morning residential fire in Brocklehurst is being treated as an arson investigation.

On March 13, 2024, around 3 a.m., Kamloops RCMP frontline officers were called to a house on the 1700-block of Brunner Avenue, where firefighters were already on scene and smoke could be observed coming out of a window.

Two people were reported as throwing something into the house, then fleeing the area – one on a bike, said Corporal Crystal Evelyn, Kamloops RCMP Detachment spokesperson.

No one was injured during the fire, which was quickly extinguished. A police presence is in the area today while officers conduct neighbourhood inquiries and gather any information that could help further the investigation.

Anyone with information, dash camera or security video that may have captured footage that could be related to this incident, is asked to please contact the Kamloops RCMP Detachment at 250-828-3000 and reference file 2024-7335.
