    Two Nelson men have been arrested for arson....but police are stressing the charges are NOT connected to the wildfires

    Two Nelson men have been arrested for arson....but police are stressing the charges are NOT connected to the wildfires


    A 27 year-old has been charged over three incidents in which rubbish skips around the CBD were set alight.

    And a 24 year-old is facing charges relating to two arsons overnight.

    One incident involved a skip being set alight behind a Nelson restaurant, and the other was a residential flat.

    Police believe the two men are NOT known to each other, and acted independently.
