Cops know who sparked fires
QUEENSLAND Police know what ignited the disastrous fires that destroyed 11 properties inland of the Gold Coast last month, but have refused to release the information.
Investigations confirmed the fires in the Scenic Rim were started accidentally — not by arsonists. Police have now identified who accidentally ignited the fire, but say no charges will be laid. Police would only say the blaze was caused by “accidental initiation of fire impacted by adverse weather conditions”.
