Jan 29 2012
Fire gutted a stolen pick-up truck near the intersection at Maplebank and Admirals roads late Saturday night.
The vehicle, believed to be a Ford F350, was completely engulfed in flames when West Shore RCMP arrived around 10:30 p.m.
Fire fighters from View Royal Fire Department showed up moments later to put out the blaze. The vehicle was just sitting in an open area.
Police called the owner, who was not at home, and advised him his vehicle had burned. It is believed to have been stolen from nearby Seenupin Road.
“When we notified the owner, he knew nothing about it,” said Cpl. Scott Braes with the West Shore RCMP.
Damages were significant and the truck is a total loss. Police continue an investigation.
