Police to lay charges over house fire

The Pioneer Ave property.
TWO teenagers are facing charges over a fire in a vacant police residence in Pioneer Ave earlier this week.

Police say a 15-year-old and a 14-year-old will be proceeded against following the fire which occurred in the early hours last Tuesday, July 26.  The pair will be summonsed to appear in
the Youth Justice Court, each facing one count of arson.

The fire is estimated to have caused about $200,000 damage to the house which had reportedly been vacant for some months. "No member of the public was at risk and there is no suggestion that the fire was deliberately targeted at police," a spokesman said.

Anyone with information, or who may have seen people acting suspiciously, is asked to call Bridgewater CIB on 13 14 44 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
