May 27. (EUROPE PRESS) –
The acting deputy commissioner of the Sydney Police has reported this Friday that two 13-year-old boys turned themselves in to police on Thursday night after a fire destroyed a seven-story heritage building in the center of the Australian city Sydney.
Dunstan has asked other “three or four young people present during the fire” to appear with their parents and “expose their version of the story,” according to what he said in a press conference collected by .
The images of the fire showed a large column of fire and smoke that could be seen from various parts of the city and how its façade was collapsing, so that more than a hundred firefighters had to go to the place, who finally managed to extinguish it. One of them was “slightly injured” with a burn on his arm, according to the Australian network ABC.
No civilians have been injured, but police reported that 15 homeless people had spent the night in the building before the incident and officers have already been able to contact 13 of them.
