POLICE have released an image of a man sought for questioning over a scrub fire that threatened houses at East Ivanhoe, in Melbourne's northeast.
Up to 50 Metropolitan Fire Brigade (MFB) officers fought the three hectare blaze blaze in scrub that began in the Yarra Flats at East Ivanhoe about 3pm (AEDT), police said.
It's believed the fire was deliberately lit and police are investigating.

looks like he knows in what direction mecca lies
Hard to say. He looks a bit native Australian.
I don’t know, looks Amish to me.
Does Australia still have issues with the Aboriginals? Is there any running separatist movement there, or are they provided the American/ Canadian equivalent of Indian Reserves and First Nations?
Well ya gots to know the natives may have a bone to pick with other Australians.
I mean they did to the aborigonees what we did to the American Indians, tried to wipe them out.
No real separatist movement but there are certainly issues. The most radical of the indigenous movements want a treaty, but really most just want access to a decent standard of living and realise the best way to get that is to work with other Australians to resolve the problems that still exist and to find solutions.
As an Australian, I have to say this photofit does not, in my view, particularly resemble an Australian aboriginal.
I’m just going by the nose and eyes for my opinion on him being a native (possibly mixed race) but it is only a composite drawing.
Yes, I too was thinking in those lines, especially the sunken nostrils.
Maybe the kid took Midnight Oil too seriously.
(Don't think so. . .)
Dang.....brutal....he should have just followed in Peter Garrett’s footsteps and become a lawyer and a member of the Australian House of Representatives....
Looks like this belongs on the religion of peace (ROP) ping.
Think the perp might be muslim? It’s not too far-fethched an idea given all the problems they have been causing recently.
Islam group urges forest fire jihad

AUSTRALIA has been singled out as a target for “forest jihad” by a group of Islamic extremists urging Muslims to deliberately light bushfires as a weapon of terror.
US intelligence channels earlier this year identified a website calling on Muslims in Australia, the US, Europe and Russia to “start forest fires”, claiming “scholars have justified chopping down and burning the infidels’ forests when they do the same to our lands”.
Wow - look at my post above yours. Thanks for the link!!
Meanwhile, the fighterfighter’s union is siding with the enviroweenies....
Well, he sure “doesn’t look like the guys on the dollar bills.”
Interesting bit at the end:
But starting bushfires was still often regarded as less effective than other operations because governments could easily deny terrorism as the cause.
He doesn’t look aboriginal much, more like Indonesian.
