A 34 year old man has been arrested following the devastating blaze that tore through the Overstrand area in Western Cape.
According to the police the man was arrested for contravening the Nature Conservation Act, an act more serious than arson.
“We arrested the suspect for the fires. We’ve got witnesses also. We locked the suspect at Kleinmond police station,” Captain Harold Nqwenani told News24.
The man is expected to appear in court on Monday, January 7.
