If you live, work or are visiting a bushfire-prone area, it’s important you know the signs of a bushfire arsonist. 

Arsonists are known to ignite small fires, practicing their methods before escalating to larger and potentially more deadly fires. Look out for:

  • People acting unusually, or wearing unusual clothing. For example, not dressed for a trail walk
  • If something or someone makes you suspicious, try to remember their age, sex, weight, height, hair colour or clothing 
  • A vehicle or driver that looks out of place; take note of registration number, make, model, colour and any distinguishing features (such as dents, stickers)
  • Report any burnt out fires as arsonists practice lighting small fires

If you see suspicious behaviour currently happening then call Police on 131 444.

If you see a fire burning or smoke then call 000 for fire services

If you have information about someone who is deliberately lighting fires then call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report online at www.crimestoppers.com.au
