MADRID, 27 May. (EUROPEAN PRESS) –
The acting commissioner of Sydney Police reported this Friday that two 13-year-old boys surrendered to police after a fire broke out in a historic seven-story building in the center of Sydney, Australia, on Thursday night.
Dunstan asked “three or four other teenagers present at the time of the fire” to appear with their parents and “explain their own version of the story,” he said at a press conference convened by CNN.
Footage of the fire showed a large column of fire and smoke visible from various parts of the city and how its facade was collapsing, so more than a hundred firefighters had to go to the scene and eventually managed to put out the fire. One of them was “slightly injured” by a burn on his arm, according to Australian channel ABC.
No civilians were injured, but police reported that 15 homeless people had spent the night in the building prior to the incident and officers have already been in contact with 13.
