[rfs-bluemountains-information] Man arrested over Blue Mountains bushfire

Good news everyone!
From the Telegraph’s website:
A MAN has been arrested following investigations into a deliberately-lit bushfire in the Blue Mountains last year.
The bushfire began on the afternoon of October 24 at Katoomba Cascades and burnt an area of about 19 hectares, damaging a number houses.

A man was arrested at Katoomba this morning by detectives attached to the Arson Unit’s Strike Force Tronto and the Blue Mountains Local Area Command.

The 2011-2012 bushfire season continues this month and police urge anyone who notices a bushfire or any suspicious activity to contact Triple Zero (000).

Information about the deliberate lighting of bushfires can be reported anonymously to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
