Suspect Arrested in Australia Fire

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) - A media report says a suspect has
been charged with lighting one of the wildfires that killed more
than 180 people in Australia last weekend.
Australian Broadcasting Corp. reported Friday that the man was
charged in court on three counts: arson causing death, lighting a
wildfire and with possession of child pornography. The report cites
no sources.
The man did not appear in the Morwell Magistrates Court, where
he was ordered to undergo psychiatric evaluation.
The arson charges are connected to a blaze known as the
Churchill fire, one of hundreds that raged through southeastern
Victoria state last Saturday, killing more than 181 people and
destroying almost 2,000 homes.
