Fire at Merbein's Blandowski Walk stairway 'so disappointing'

A SUSPICIOUS fire that severely destroyed part of Merbein’s Blandowski Walk stairway on Monday night has left members of the community devastated after they spent years lobbying for the costly structure.

Crews were called to site just off Forbes Drive, Merbein, about 6.15pm with reports the viewing platform of the stairway was alight.
