Wage peace not war

Northern Rivers Peace group, Remembering and Healing is inviting all community members to a peace gathering on the eve of ANZAC Day.

Police say they believe a group of young teens playing with a lighter was responsible for a fire on the Tweed over the weekend.

They say police, ambulance workers and the Fire Brigade were called to a fire in a Honeysuckle Sreet unit on Tweed Heads around midnight Saturday.

The fire was contained to one bedroom but smoke filled the building and paramedics treated a 35-year-old resident for smoke inhalation.

Other residents were evacuated.

Police said they believe the fire started when a group of teens set fire to a pizza box in one of the units.

It is estimated to have caused around $50-thousand-dollars worth of damage.
