A police investigation is continuing into the cause of a vehicle fire in Parksville early Saturday morning.
The vehicle, parked at 219 Martindale, was completely destroyed by the Nov. 4 blaze, which was reported at 2:30 a.m.
In an interview Tuesday, a woman at the residence who identified herself only as the girlfriend of the vehicle owner, said she had no idea why or how the vehicle caught fire, noting it had been recently purchased and was not yet insured.
Oceanside RCMP Corporal Asaf Chaudhry said officers are looking into the possible causes of the fire and the matter remains under active investigation.
“All we know is there was a fire, we attended and it was subsequently put out,” he said. “The investigation is ongoing.”
