Footage sought over suspicious Perth blaze

A bushfire in Perth's northern suburbs is being treated as suspicious, with police seeking footage of a car seen in the area.

A watch and act alert was issued for the Dianella blaze, which burnt through three hectares on Friday afternoon before being extinguished.

The fire is thought to have started between Dianella Drive and Gay Street, and police want to speak to the owner or driver of an old, brown-coloured sedan seen in the area over the last few months.

Drivers who were in the area between 4pm and 5pm and who have dash cam footage are asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via www.crimestopperswa.com.au.
