On arrival they found garden rubbish which had been deliberately set on fire.

Having tackled that the volunteer brigade was then sent out shortly before 10pm to Oxney Road where a skip was on fire in an industrial estate.

Again, the fire was started deliberately.

Anyone with information on either of the deliberate fires should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
