Brendan Sokaluk Named As Australian Arson Suspect

Fire has left 7,000 homeless:

An Australian man has been charged by police in the deadly fire outbreak that has reportedly killed 21 people and left some 7,000 homeless.

The fire, which is said to have destroyed over 1,800 properties, was reportedly set by a former volunteer fireman who had recently been let go by the force.

39-year-old Brendan Sokaluk, was recently identified in documents as the man suspected of lighting the fires sometime on February 7. Police say he started the fire near the town of Churchill, in the state of Victoria.

Sokaluk has been charged with arson causing death, intentionally lighting a bush fire, as well as possessing child pornography. Go figure.
