You wouldn't believe what three kids tried to burn down

TWO teens and a 12-year-old have been arrested after attempting to burn down an iconic Rockhampton tourist drawcard last night.   About 8.40pm, police were called to Kershaw Gardens after three juveniles, aged 12, 13 and 15, were seen climbing Wyatt's Wonder Web and setting fire to the shade cloth.   The trio fled the scene on police arrival, but were caught shortly after. Two fire crews arrived at 8.48pm to find the roof ablaze.   A Queensland Fire and Emergency Services spokesperson said the fire was out within a minute and the crews were only on scene for about 15 minutes. There appears to be minimal to no damage to the structure.   The three are due to appear in court on August 20, charged with wilful damage and possessing dangerous drugs.   TWO teens and a 12-year-old have been arrested after attempting to burn down an iconic Rockhampton tourist drawcard last night.   About 8.40pm, police were called to Kershaw Gardens after three juveniles, aged 12, 13 and 15, were seen climbing Wyatt's Wonder Web and setting fire to the shade cloth.   The trio fled the scene on police arrival, but were caught shortly after.
