The Tweed is dealing with a spat of alleged suspicious fires across the shire, which are resulting in widespread destruction of bush land and now property.

Tweed Police have been carrying out patrols aimed at spotting potential fire bugs with increasing chances someone is eventually apprehended.

Three units from Tweed Heads Firefighters were called to the building fire and crews took about an hour to contain the blaze.
