It would appear a family evacuated as a result of the Trepanier Creek Forest Fire have more pressing concerns.
Their truck and camper were stolen overnight from the parking lot of the Super 8 Motel on Highway 97 in Kelowna where they had been staying.

Not much information is known at this time, however, RCMP Cst. Kris Clark confirms a green Dodge Ram 3500, with a 10'2" Northern Light Camper were stolen sometime overnight.

Clark says staff at the motel may have seen the vehicle leaving about 1:30 Wednesday morning.

A Twitter posting Wednesday morning say the truck and camper did indeed belong to people evacuated from the fire zone.

Anyone with information on the theft is asked to call the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at to report.
