Police are still investigating at least 14 suspicious fires lit across Victoria during the past week, including two of the fires at Wunghnu that burned more than 9000ha.CHLOE WARBURTON February 15, 2014 5:31am
This week, radio and print advertisements will urge the public to report any suspicious behaviour to police. The campaign will complement existing bushfire arson initiatives, including the annual Operation Firesetter and the specially trained Bushfire Arson Liaison Officers embedded across the state.
Victoria Police Deputy Commissioner Tim Cartwright reiterated bushfire arson was a serious crime and all suspicious fires would be investigated.
‘‘Bushfire arson has the capacity to injure, kill and destroy. Victoria Police will be looking into all fires that are deemed suspicious and anyone found guilty of deliberately lighting a bushfire will face serious penalties — the most severe of which can be 25 years in jail,’’ he said.
Police are investigating fires that started on Kaarimba Rd and Goulburn Valley Hwy at Wunghnu.
Police are currently at a location in Kaarimba examining what they say appears to be an improvised explosive device.
