Around 35 acres of forest was destroyed on Saturday in a fire that erupted in the protected areas of the Castlereagh reservoir and Devon Falls.

Police suspect that the fire has been deliberately caused by a certain group. Police said around 500 acres near the hill country water sources have already been destroyed in a recent wild fire. Police also suspect that hunters could be setting fire to forests to trap and surround animals.

A search operation is being conducted by the Police to arrest them.
