Two fires in the Wenita Forestry block in Kaitangata on
Thursday are being treated as suspicious and are under police
investigation, Department of Conservation deputy principal
rural fire officer Trevor Mitchell confirmed yesterday.
Wanaka police are relieved no fires were lit on the corner of
Chalmers St and Stratford Tce yesterday but continue to chase
every lead as they hunt the person responsible for six
deliberately-lit fires at the site since January 9.
