Dampier Pennsula is burning

Country is burning, most of the western side of the Dampier Peninsula is on fire. Just south of James Price Point heading south west and fuelled by south easterlies and heading towards the coast. It is understood that the Department of Environment and Conservation believe these fires have been deliberately lit. Fires have been started the whole length of the Peninsular along the Cape Leveque Road. Redhand raised an eyebrow last week when it was observed on the Firenorth website that there was a sprinkling of fires on the southern eastern end of Coulomb Point Nature Reserve, a very inaccessible location with no access roads, difficult walking environment and certainly no lightning strike in the middle of the dry.
