Not everyone starts a fire deliberately
Help keep Victoria safe by looking out for reckless and dangerous fire behaviour in our towns, parks and forests this summer.
Whether recklessly or deliberately lit, bush and grass fires have disastrous consequences. It is a criminal offence under Victorian law to cause a bushfire recklessly, or to be reckless as to the spread of a fire to vegetation or property belonging to another.
CFA Acting Chief Officer Garry Cook said the organisation took a zero tolerance approach to any unauthorised fires or fires resulting from negligent behaviour subject to police investigation.
