In response to charges laid today, the City of Swan and Shire of Mundaring acknowledge WA Police for their work on the investigation of the Wooroloo Bushfire.
We respect due process and will allow the court process to continue without giving further comment on the investigation.
Our thoughts are with the community who have been impacted deeply by this fire, and we acknowledge this news will bring up a lot of emotion for many people in our communities.
We will continue with our joint recovery efforts and are here to support our communities every step of the way.
