A man accused of deliberately lighting a fire near Fingal says it's "bullshit" he has been remanded in custody.
Robert Peter Matthewson, 35, of Mangana, appeared in the Launceston Magistrates Court on Monday.
Magistrate Sharon Cure opposed his bail application.
It is alleged Mr Matthewson deliberately set fire to vegetation and lit a fire during a total fire ban at Mangana on December 30.
He will reappear in court on January 31.
