Police hunt for arsonist after series of fires in Perth’s north-east
Police are searching for a “male on a bike” after a series of fires in Morley in Perth’s north-east overnight.
Arson detectives said eight homes were targeted with seven cars and a boat set on fire.
It’s believed the first house that was targeted is on Red Gum Way.
Nine News Reporter Zarisha Bradley told Oliver Peterson there’s been a trail of destruction.
“A man’s work van has been completely torched,” she said.
“And we’ve had a chat with a wife and the five-year-old son … they’re still in shock, she feared for her son’s life last night, it came just centimetres from the house.”
