Drone Footage Shows Early Stages of Queensland Bushfire Teenagers Charged With Setting

Two Queensland teenagers have been charged with starting a fire on September 9 that forced 5,000 people to evacuate from the town of Peregian Beach, Australian media reported.

A 14-year-old boy and a 15-year-old girl from the area were charged with endangering property by fire. Authorities allege the fires were deliberately set.
