a similar event at the School I teach at led to the removal of paper towel and waste paper baskets from all the student toilets in the School. A couple of losers spoiling it for everyone… Damage was much greater in our case, though…

No doubt, it will be a similar cause for the Telopea “blaze”…

I went to this school..the bathrooms dont have paper towel anymore… more likely some bogan kid smoking in the toilets!
