WA: Employees forgiven for factory blaze

PERTH, Feb 18 AAP - The owner of a Perth furniture factory which suffered $1.5 million
worth of damage after a fire on Monday has forgiven the two teenage employees who started it.

Gascoigne Furniture owner Kim Gascoigne said he would not press charges against the
18-year-olds who admitted they started the fire at the suburban Midvale factory.

They had also apologised to their workmates, he said.

"Some lady said, you know, they should be castrated, they should be put in prison," he told
reporters.

"I'm sure all of us have done silly things when we were 16, 17, 18.

"These boys are at the start of their lives.

"In all fairness to them it wasn't premediated, they didn't mean to do it, and in all
fairness to them they should be given a second chance."

The employees were lighting a paint spray gun with a cigarette lighter when the fire
started about 4.30pm.

More than 30 firefighters took an hour to control the spectacular blaze.
