Appeal to report deliberate firestarters in Penmaenmawr areaPosted
North Wales Fire and Rescue Service is appealing to residents in the Penmaenmawr to be on their guard and to report deliberate firestarters following two incidents in the area.
Both incidents were fires involving wheelie bins on Paradise Road, Penmaenmawr - the first incident occurred at 01.15hrs on Monday 4th June and the second at 23.59 on Tuesday 5th June. Damage was caused to the wooden children's play area
Kevin Jones, Arson Reduction Manager said: "This type of criminal behaviour puts not only the lives of those carrying out the activity at risk but also the lives of firefighters attempting to extinguish the fire.
"We are working closely with local policing teams to combat deliberate firestarting - arson is a serious crime and in conjunction with North Wales Police we will pursue prosecutions."
Anyone with information in relation to deliberate firestarters is urged to contact North Wales Police on 101 or anonymously via Crime stoppers on 0800 555 111.
