Wilful Fire Raising

How we can help

Wilful Fire Raising Legal Advice

Wilful fire raising is an offence under Scottish law applicable to deliberately starting fires with intent to cause damage to property. 

The offence is similar to the offence of arson in England and Wales, however there is a difference between the two. Wilful fire raising only covers fires that were started deliberately, however arson includes cases where the fire was not entirely deliberate but made through malicious or reckless behaviour. In Scottish law, if a fire is the result of an act of recklessness, the offence of culpable and reckless conduct applies.
