Man to face court over Belconnen unit fire

By MsJane - 22 April 2014 3

A 25-year-old Belconnen man will face the ACT Magistrates Court this morning following a fire at a unit in Belconnen last night (Monday, 21 April).

Around 6.35pm, members from Belconnen Police Station responded to a report of a disturbance in a unit in Howie Court, Belconnen. On arrival they saw a unit on fire.

ACT Fire and Rescue extinguished the fire, however a number of residents in nearby units had to be evacuated.

Witnesses identified a man as deliberately lighting the fire to the unit which had two people inside at the time. The residents were evacuated with no reported injuries.

The unit sustained fire damage and up to eight units have smoke damage. Investigations into the fire are continuing.

The 25-year-old man was taken to the City Police Station where he was interviewed and subsequently charged with arson.

There was a fire in Howie Court just about 2 weeks ago, connected?

And another around eight weeks ago.

Well it is getting rather nippy of late and things do get rather heated in that neck of the woods…
