In New Zealand, police believe a hostel fire that killed six people was arson. A murder probe has been launched in the matter.
Speaking to reporters, the police chief did not reveal the basis of the police’s suspicions. No one has been arrested, but police have a list of people they want to interview.
Earlier, the police said that hours before the major fire broke out, there was a sofa in the building which was on fire and the rescue teams were not informed about it. A possible connection between the fires is being investigated.
There are still people missing from Tuesday’s fire in Wellington, so there could be more deaths. Police plan to begin an investigation inside the home only when it is safe to do so, possibly today.
