Police Want To Speak To Men Seen Laughing As Bushfire Burns
Shocking video showing three men talking, laughing and even filming the devastating bushfires over the weekend has now emerged online.
The footage, posted to social media platform Snapchat, first shows the three males in bushland all wearing bandanas and standing near a small fire at night.
The video then shows the same three men at a later point with their bandanas now removed laughing as the now much larger fire surrounds them.
The caption on the footage shows that the video was taken near Heathcote which, if true, places them in the vicinity of the fires that ravaged 3,200 hectares of bushland in southwest Sydney.
NSW Rural Fire Service Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons gave the video to police and later told 9 News it was, 'at the very least a gross act of stupidity and it clearly could be a whole lot more.'
Police wish to speak all three men in the video to assist them in their investigations.
