Police chase Blenheim serial arsonist

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 17/04/2016

A series of deliberate fires around Blenheim have prompted a police plea for public information.

Four separate fires were lit around the town on Friday night and another three earlier in the week are being investigated.

The fires, around the south and south west areas of Blenheim, haven't caused serious damage, but were close to houses, says Senior Sergeant Ciaran Sloan.

"At this stage we're just lucky there has been no serious damage. There will be someone out there who knows who is responsible and they need to contact police," he said.
