A sign outside Vernon’s Sterling Centre burned overnight.
An overnight fire appears to have spread from a dumpster to a sign outside Vernon’s Sterling Centre.
Yellow police tape surrounds the scene on 25th Avenue near Highway 97 Sunday morning.
The burned out remains of a commercial sign remains standing, while what appears to be burned wood surrounds a nearby dumpster.
As of 10 a.m. Sunday morning, the Vernon Fire Department is no longer on scene, but the smell of smoke remains.
It’s not clear at this time what sparked the fire.
