Cops know who sparked fires

Mercury (Hobart) - - NEWS -

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”.
