George Town fire deliberate

Another house fire in George Town was deliberately lit.

A little after 6.30pm last night (Sunday), the Tasmania Fire Service arrived at the Agnes Street address to find the front bedroom well alight.

It was extinguished quickly, but there was fire and smoke damage throughout the home, the repair bill estimated at $150,000.

A fire caused $200,000 damage to a George Town Housing Tasmania home in Stonehouse Street on February 9th.

That was found to be arson.

While in January 2018, a bushfire that threatened homes was deliberately lit in a rubbish pile.
