Another suspected arson attack in Jandabup

Another suspected arson attack in Jandabup

THERE has been another bushfire in Jandabup suspected to be deliberately lit.

The fire in the pine plantation near Quail and Amarante roads was reported at 9.42pm last night.

A Department of Fire and Emergency Services spokeswoman said eight fire crews were sent to the blaze that burnt through an area of grass measuring about 20m by 30m.

It took them about an hour to get the fire under control.

The Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions will continue to patrol the area today.

The fire follows an earlier suspected arson attack in Jandabup on Australia Day that burnt about 40ha of bushland and private property and prompted an emergency warning for people in the area.

A car stolen in Murdoch is believed to have sparked the January 26 bushfire, which took two days to fully extinguish, and Arson Squad detectives have appealed to the public for information
