A man has been arrested after allegedly lighting a brush fence at Golden Grove in Adelaide’s northern suburbs overnight.
Police stated a member of the public noticed the man acting suspiciously almost the fence on the Golden Way just ahead of three:00am.
She saw the man leave the area on foot and provided emergency services with a description.
Crews extinguished the blaze, which had currently began spreading to nearby trees, and police arrested the suspect.
A 48-year-old man from Greenwith was charged with arson and will face the Elizabeth Magistrates Court in December.
