Two men have been charged after allegedly throwing fireworks from a vehicle which sparked a bushfire, destroying more than 14 kilometres of Albinia National Park this morning.
It will be alleged the men were driving along the Dawson Highway when they were witnessed throwing the fireworks into bushland between Bottle Tree Downs Road and Panorama Creek around 1.20am.
It took nine rural fire and three national park firefighting units to contain the blaze.
The men aged 32 and 37 were located today and charged with one count each of light unauthorised fire and offence in relation to unauthorised and prohibited explosives.
They are due to appear in Emerald Magistrates Court on October 26.
Due to future forecasts, firefighting units will be required to monitor the site over the next few days to ensure no further spot fires develop.
