Fire crews were called to two suspicious car fires in less than 15 minutes on either side of Mildenhall.

A crew from Mildenhall was called just before 7.15pm on Wednesday to Warren Road, Red Lodge, where they found a camper van on fire. This fires was described as ‘of doubtful origin’.

Then, just before 7.30pm, a Cambridgeshire Fire Service crew from Littleport went to Newmans Drove, Sedge Fen, about 11 miles from the first fire, to deal with a car on fire, which the crew thought was started deliberately.

In both cases they used hosereels to put out the fires.
