8 kids caught for lighting 20 fires in one night
EIGHT kids under 12 have been caught for deliberately lighting 20 fires at a Plains Station Rd property near Tabulam.
Rural Fire Service crews were called to the scene at 7.10pm on October 26 where crews battled the 20-acre blaze for four hours.
The children aged over 10 were dealt with under the Young Offenders Act while those under 10 received a "talking to", Richmond LAC chief inspector Nicole Bruce said.
She said no houses were destroyed in the fire.
Police attended Tabulam Public School earlier this month to do a follow up fire safety lecture with the students.
