Forresters Beach fires thought to have been arson

Police are investigating two suspicious fires at Forresters Beach on Tuesday, April 28, which are believed to be linked.

At about 8:40pm, emergency services were called to a house fire on The Entrance Rd.

At about the same time, police located a second fire at a mini golf club on the same road.

Officers attached to Fire and Rescue NSW extinguished both fires a short time later; however the house was destroyed and the structure of the golf club premises was extensively damaged.

No one was injured during both incidents.

Police attached to Brisbane Water Local Area Command attended and established crime scenes.

Initial investigations indicate both fires may have been deliberately lit and police are appealing for any witnesses or anyone with information to come forward and contact crime stoppers.
