Police investigating deliberately lit blaze on NSW South Coast

Investigations are underway following a suspicious fire on the New South Wales South Coast today.

Around 8.15am this morning, emergency services were called to a grass fire on the western side of the Princess Highway at Ulladulla.

Luckily, the blaze was extinguished before it caused damage to properties, and no one was injured.


A crime scene has since been established, with specialist officers forensically examining the scene.

Police say initial investigations suggest the fire was deliberately lit and are now looking to speak with a woman who may be able to assist with the investigation.

She’s described as being of Caucasian appearance, around 170 centimetres tall, of medium build with dark hair.

She was last seen wearing a dark jumpsuit/overalls with bright colours on it.

Anyone with information about the blaze or the woman, or anyone with dashcam footage, is being urged to come forward.
