Girl (14) on ar­son charge

Weekend Courier - - Front Page -

A 14-YEAR-OLD girl has been charged with light­ing a fire at the Ad­ven­ture Park in Kwinana.

Col­lab­o­ra­tive ef­forts be­tween the City of Kwinana and the WA Po­lice re­sulted in the charge.

A City spokes­woman said the soft fall floor of the park was dam­aged by the fire last month. The in­ci­dent was re­ported to po­lice and the area was re­paired.

The park care­tak­ers, City As­sist, City of Kwinana staff and WA Po­lice worked to­gether, view­ing CCTV cam­eras and in­ves­ti­gat­ing the in­ci­dent.

Mayor Carol Adams said coun­cil took pride in its fa­cil­i­ties and it was ex­tremely dis­ap­point­ing when peo­ple did not treat them with re­spect. The girl is due to ap­pear in court later this month.
