They’ve determined that he has, on July 23rd, around 4:30 AM, started a fire in Modrino selo. He used some newspapers and a cigarette lighter to intentionally start a fire very close to several houses. He ignited some dry grass, however, the firefighters reacted on time and wouldn’t allow the fire to spread. It’s estimated that the fire was able to burn around 6 acres (60,000 square meters).

It was also determined that the same suspect started two smaller fires in the same area on June 28th. He was using the same tools to start those fires, newspapers and a lighter, but the first two fires were put out immediately, burning only around 70 square meters.

He is kept in custody in Šibenik while awaiting trial.

Kudos to the Knin police department for being able to stop an arsonist a day after he started a fire. The last thing we need now, with such a severe weather situation (heat, drought) is people starting intentional fires, which might end up being disastrous.
