Prince Albert has seen three vehicle fires in less than a week. Although two are currently under police investigation, no connection between the fires is suspected.

Police and firefighters responded to the most recent incident Monday evening shortly after 10 p.m. in an alley behind the 100-block of 27th St. W. According to the Prince Albert Fire Department, responding firefighters found a truck ablaze in the alley with flames emerging from the rear cab and box. Fire crews extinguished the vehicle and monitored it for lingering hot spots before a tow truck arrived and moved the burned-out truck to a police compound for further investigation.

“The fire is not considered suspicious at this time,” a police spokesperson said in an email to paNOW.

Although the city saw two similar fires last week, and one is also under investigation, the police department said they don’t believe there is a connection between the March 8 vehicle fires and last night’s truck fire.

“This is an individual case and not suspected to be linked to any other cases,” the police spokesperson said. “Police are still investigating the incident.”
