Evidence suggesting Tuesday’s fire in Bega flats may have been deliberately lit has been uncovered by Police investigating the blaze, reports ABC News.
Police are analysing a substance they believe was used to accelerate the fire in a unit at the Bega flats in Cooyong Street, opposite the Canberra centre.
The presence of such a substance along with the reports of an explosion being the cause of the blaze do paint a nasty looking picture, however there is as of yet no official word on the matter.
