Man Charged Over Coniston Fire

A man has been charged over a fire which destroyed two garages in CONISTON last month.
Late at night on Wednesday December 27 emergency services were called to a blaze at a unit complex on Heaslip Street and found two adjoining garages well alight.
Evacuations were needed, but no one was hurt.
At 11 o'clock last night a 36-year-old man was arrested and taken to Wollongong Police Station where he's been charged with  ' damage property by fire ' and he's been granted conditional bail to appear in Wollongong Local Court next week.
