Pembina Valley RCMP is investigating after emergency crews were called to an unknown explosion in the R.M. of Dufferin late Thursday night.
When officers and fire fighters arrived on scene, a rural municipal road, they discovered an older model pick-up truck fully engulfed in flames, which were quickly doused. In speaking with those who called in the incident, RCMP believe the pops that were heard originated from the vehicle as it burned, noting officers also heard the sounds when they got to the scene.
According to the Carman-Dufferin Fire Department, there were no occupants in the vehicle at the time.
RCMP is working to find out if the truck was stolen, noting there were no license plates to be found and only a partial vin number could be detected.
