Pokies burn in Beenleigh attack

A 25-year-old man will face court today (Thursday), accused of torching 40 poker machines at a Beenleigh hotel.

He's accused of dousing the machines in petrol before setting them alight about 8.40pm Wednesday.

The blaze destroyed three of the machines, and left the remaining 37 damaged beyond repair from exposure to chemicals.

The Beenleigh man has been charged with endangering particular property by fire.
