WA bushfires update: Arson Squad investigating if Bullsbrook fire deliberately lit

WA’s arson squad is investigating whether or not a fire that broke out in Bullsbrook on Thursday was deliberately lit.

The Bullsbrook fire broke out individually to the huge Wooroloo blaze that has destroyed 86 properties and burnt via greater than 10,000 ha of land.

The fire on Wilson Highway, East of Bullsbrook, tore via 40 hectares earlier than firefighters managed to deliver it beneath management.

On Friday, DFES Commissioner Darren Klemm stated investigators have been already wanting into how that fire began.

“The arson squad with WA Police is investigating, supported by DFES investigators,” Klemm stated.

“That might be a course of labor. They’ve recognized the reason for origin by way of a sure place and level on a block.

“However precisely what brought about it to start out remains to be being investigated.”
