Fire investigation at Cranbrook

Police arrested two 15-year-old boys following investigations into a fire which occurred at a Cranbrook shopping centre shortly after 7.10pm last night (October 14).

The fire, which was allegedly deliberately lit in the camping area of a department store located inside the Ross River Road centre, caused smoke damage.

The centre self-evacuated and no one was injured.

The two boys were taken into custody on Ross River Road at around 7.40pm. Both have been dealt with under the provisions of the Youth Justices Act.

A third teenage boy is expected to be interviewed by police later today.
