      Australian fires - Arson

      Police in Australia are accusing 24 people of deliberately setting bushfires

      "Police have charged at least 24 people for intentionally starting bushfires in the state of New South Wales, according to a statement the New South Wales Police released Monday.

      NSW Police have taken legal action against 183 people, 40 of whom are juveniles, for fire-related offenses since November 8, the statement said. The legal actions range from cautions to criminal charges."


      It appears that not all the people were purposely trying to start a wildfire but some things were cooking purposes or tossing a lit cigarette.

      For those not intentionmally doing I would charge with reckless endangerment but for those who deliberately set them the charge should be murder

      Southern California - like some parts of Australia - are given to terrible fires. Arson is always a problem, but at least 3 very big fires around here were started otherwise - two by electrical power lines being blown down in strong "Santa Ana" winds, and one simply by a car that had mechanical problems on the freeway and pulled off the road, the too hot exhaust started the brush on fire and the winds spread it very quickly.


      I wonder about our friend MoreCoffee?

      It's started to rain down there which has helped with the fires.

      Sad people start this without realizing the consequence. Hope more rain pours in and stops the fire completely.

      For all who remember Strav, I messaged him to find out if he's okay and he's doing well!
