Police have released an image and are appealing for public assistance as investigations continue into a fire that damaged bushland and property in Sydney’s north west last year.

About 12.30pm on Sunday 29 November 2020, emergency services responded to reports of a fire in bushland at Moxham Park, Northmead, which caused extensive damage to a house in Whitehaven Road.

Four firefighters sustained minor injuries while extinguishing the fire.
