South Burnett Fires May Have Been Lit Deliberately

Investigators believe a large number of fires that took hold across the South Burnett on the weekend may have been deliberately lit.

Kingaroy Area Commander Mark Long speaking with southburnett.com tells them they are treating a number of the fires as suspicious.  Sixteen fires may have been deliberately lit through East Nanango, Blackbutt, Binjour and Goomeri.

Inspector Long is urging us to remain vigilant and report any suspicious behaviour to Triple Zero (000).

On Sunday a 26-year-old Kingaroy man was arrested, police charging him in relation to nine fires that were lit on a vacant piece of land at Oasis Drive in Kingaroy.
