Teenager Arrested After Spate of Fires in Bere Regis
9:20am 7th September 2012
A man's been arrested on suspicion of arson in Bere Regis.
It's in connection with a wheelie bin that was set on fire in a covered car park, on Manor Road last Saturday night (1st September 2012) at around 11:30pm.
The blaze was dangerously close to flats and dental surgery.
Officers and fire-fighters attended the scene and brought the fire under control without it spreading to any of the nearby properties and no one was injured.
It's the latest incident of arson to blight the local area in recent weeks, although Dorset Fire and Rescue can't be sure if Saturday's incident is related.
The 19 year old's been released on bail pending further enquiries AND Dorset Police are appealing for any witnesses to contact them on 101 quoting incident number 01:598.
