Australia — A class action has been launched against a private electricity company over one of the bush fires in Victoria.

The Melbourne Age reports the case centres on a fallen power line in Kilmore East that may have started the Kinglake fire, which killed 100 people.

The Age reports the class action is being taken by Melbourne based firm Slidders Lawyers and will cover thousands of farmers, small business owners, tourist operators and residents who lost their homes in the Kinglake fire.

The Age reports the compensation case will be against the Singapore based firm SP AusNet which is responsible for maintaining most of the power lines in eastern Victoria
