Who started the fire in australia?
The bushfires are often started by natural causes such as lightning strikes, however humans are also sometimes to blame. Back in November, a man was arrested for allegedly a starting fire, which destroyed more than 5,400 hectares, in order to protect his marijuana plants.
Extreme heat, dry lightening, strong winds and one of the worst droughts in decades have all contributed to Australia's worst wildfires in decades. Police have also charged at least 24 people with deliberately starting bushfires, and have charged more than 100 people for fire-related offenses.
