Have information on a deliberate fire? Tell FireStoppers what you know. Even small outdoor fires can be dangerous, because they place additional stress on our limited resources – dealing with a nuisance fire affects our ability to respond to more serious incidents like house fires or road traffic accidents.  If you have information regarding an incident of deliberate fire, you can tell us what you know,  100% anonymously.  We are interested in what you know, not your identity.
