Two people arrested over Victorian bushfires in Australia
Two people have been arrested over the Victorian bushfires in Australia after police responded this morning to suspicious behaviour between Seymour and Yea, which is north of Melbourne.
Police are not saying much about the arrests yet only to say that the two are assisting with inquires. The death toll from the fires currently stand at 181 people, but not all the areas have been explored yet. Police suspect that arsonists are responible for the Churchill fire at least.
Deputy Police Commissioner Simon Overland says the pair were not seen lighting fires and they are assisting police with their inquiries
"It will take us a little time just to work through and establish just what's been going on," he said.
