Following suspicions that this weeks bushfires near Leura in the Blue Mountains may have been deliberately lit, police have issued a warning to would be arsonists and asking for community assistance in reporting any suspicious activity.

Police addressed the media today to remind the public that arson is a serious crime and to announce that they have re-activated Property Crime Squad’s Strike Force Tronto as the bushfire season approaches. The Strike Force will conduct investigations into reports of suspicious and deliberately lit fires across NSW.

“Strike Force Tronto 2011 has been re-activated with the aim of leading and/or assisting in the response to suspicious or deliberately-lit bushfires that have resulted in death, serious injury and/or significant property loss,” Det Supt Newbery said.

“Police are committed to targeting bushfire arsonists and anyone found to be involved in the deliberate lighting of bushfires will be dealt with under the full force of the law.

“The community is urged to be vigilant during this year’s bushfire season and to contact police if they are aware of a fire or if they notice any suspicious behaviour in their area,” Det Supt Newbery said. NSW Rural Fire Service (NSWRFS) Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons said that there was a zero tolerance approach to arson.

“There is no room for this type of behaviour in our communities and the NSWRFS will continue to work closely with NSW Police to investigate suspicious fire activity,” he said.

Anyone with information is urged to contact their local police station or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 immediately.
