Police investigate stolen truck fire in Fraser Heights

FRASER HEIGHTS — Some Fraser Heights residents began their Sunday morning with a boom after a stolen truck appears to have been set on fire there.

The heat from the burning truck, in the area of 104th Avenue and 164th Street, caused its tires to blow out.

“It’s likely it was intentionally set,” Surrey RCMP Cpl. Scotty Schumann said.

Firefighters were called to the scene at 4:20 a.m.

Residents were shaken.

“You can still see damage to the nearby stop sign and a scorched area on the fence across the back lane,” one resident said.
