According to Australian authorities, two youths "handed themselves in" hours after a fire in Sydney damaged a vacant building.
Police said that 15 "rough sleepers" spent the night in the building before it caught fire, despite the fact that no members of the general public have been hurt.
Police claimed that so far, they had spoken with 13 of those people.
Acting Assistant Commissioner Paul Dunstan stated during a press conference on Friday that two 13-year-olds had "handed themselves in" late on Thursday and were "assisting police with inquiries."
Dunstan requested that "three to four" additional "young people present during the fire" appear in front of their parents "and put their side of the story forward."
The downtown Sydney building suffered "significant structural collapse" as a result of the fire that raged all through Thursday night, according to Dunstan.
Pictures captured the collapse of one of the building's walls.
"We keep doing our best to damp down the hotspots. The final extinguishment there will take some time, said to Jeremy Fewtrell, Deputy Commissioner Fire and Rescue NSW on Friday.
According to Fewtrell, engineers are currently inspecting the structure to verify its structural integrity.
