The news sounded terrible this morning. Hope they all get on top of it and loss is minimal. They were enquiring about possible arson.

I remember when I joined the volunteer fire brigade down the river the first thing the captain said when he started his opening speech was " there are three things that start fires..men women and children"...sure lightning can do it but I expect that the reality is every fire we see on the map can be traced to what the captain said.
Negligence is somewhat tolerable but starting a fire with evil intent is something that should carry a life sentence.

Regarding the fire near the Sunshine Coast, they're questioning some teens who claimed, on social media, to have started it!

That is basically what a CO2 Extinguisher is -- Dry Ice. The CO2 is in the Extiguisher anger pressure. When it comes out it comes out very cold. Dry Ice is simply Frozen CO2.
