File # 2017-25676

On February 25th, 2017 at approximately 7:00am, Surrey RCMP was advised by Surrey Fire Services of a vehicle fire in the 10500 block of Scott Road. Officers attended the scene and located a ‘camperized’ van with a deceased person located inside. The male, a 55 year old resident of Surrey, had been sleeping in the van when it caught fire. Fire investigators attended to the scene and an examination of the vehicle determined that the fire was accidentally caused by a short in the electrical system that had been modified. Attempts to notify the Next of Kin of the male are presently on going.

The BC Coroners Service attended to the scene and the matter has been turned over to their office for further investigation.
