The search continues for an arsonist who is believed to be linked to four deliberately lit fires in the region.

This comes after Emergency Services were called to a fire at the intersection of Dowdells Line and the Southern Western Highway around 1:42pm on Monday, November 4.

The blaze travelled 300 metres before it was extinguished. This is the fourth suspicious fire - all of which appear to have been lighted from a grass tree.

Police have urged the community to remain vigilant and have confirmed the fires in Burekup, Waterloo and Dardanup are believed to be linked to a single person.

Under the Bush Fires Act 1954, lighting a bush fire carries a maximum penalty of 20 years imprisonment.

Australind Police would like to speak to anyone who may have been around the area on November 4 around 1pm.

If you know anything, you can contact Australind Police on 9797 0222.
