The Saint John Police Force is looking for a vehicle believed to be involved in a tent fire earlier this month.

According to a news release from police, emergency personnel responded to the tent fire in a parking lot between Exmouth and Waterloo streets around 7:45 p.m. on Feb. 18. Four people were inside the tent when it caught fire and they managed to escape without suffering injuries.
