Albany Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

Great South­ern po­lice are ap­peal­ing for wit­nesses after a sus­pi­cious fire de­stroyed the Tun­ney Road­house last Thurs­day.

The blaze was ob­served by pa­trolling po­lice at 10.45pm at the road­house near Cran­brook on Al­bany High­way and fire units from the Depart­ment of Fire and Emer­gency Ser­vices were called in to ex­tin­guish the fire.

Po­lice say while the road­house has been closed for sev­eral years, a rear por­ta­ble donga struc­ture had been used for res­i­den­tial pur­poses but no one was in the build­ing at the time.

De­tec­tives and foren­sic of­fi­cers as well as de­tec­tives from the ar­son squad were called in to be­gin their in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

The value of the dam­age is yet to be as­sessed.

Po­lice are ap­peal­ing for any wit­nesses who were trav­el­ling on Al­bany High­way be­tween 9.45pm and 10.45pm.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is urged to call Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000.
