Suspect Arrested In Aussie Fire

EA, Australia Police arrested a suspect Friday in connection to one of the deadly wildfires in southern Australia that killed more than 180 people and left about 7,000 homeless.

Police did not release any details about the suspect, but a newspaper report said he was a 39-year-old man who would likely be charged with arson causing death in what police call the Churchill fire.

This dude doesn't look like the previous computer composite image released of arson suspect. He definitely isn't 39 yrs old.:

Correction - Per comments, the above dude is wanted for starting the fire at Ivanhoe not the Churchill fire.
