Deliberate fire setting


Every deliberate fire has victims, costs and consequences. Fire setting is an offence. Don’t accept it, report it.

Every week, over 300 fires are deliberately started in Scotland.

These fires blight our neighbourhoods, damage the environment and can sometimes cause injury or even death.

Don’t accept it, report it

All we want you to do, is tell the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) anything you know about fires that have been started in your area. Call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 if you have information about who is responsible. You won’t have to give your name or go to court.

If you have any concerns about a child or young person playing with or showing an unhealthy interest in fire, please contact your local community fire station.

For more information on deliberate fire setting, please visit the SFRS website or download the deliberate fire setting information pack.
