Echo Taskforce Investigate Hallam Gym Fire

Detectives from the Echo Taskforce are appealing for public assistance as they investigate a suspicious fire at a Hallam gym in the early hours of this morning.

Emergency services were called after a passerby noticed a glow from inside the Princes Highway gym around 4.30am this morning.

A number of windows had been smashed and it’s believed an accelerant had been poured inside the premises and set alight.

Nobody was inside at the time, but the building sustained significant damage.

An arson chemist will attend the scene this morning.

Echo Taskforce detectives will look at whether the business was targeted due to a number of outlaw motorcycle gang members attending the gym.

Investigators are urging anyone with information or who may have been in the aera at the time and has CCTV or dashcam footage to contact police.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or
