Fire crews were called to three hedgerow fires within an hour in the Mile Cross area of Norwich on Wednesday night.
Police are now investigating the cause of the fires.
The first was a hedgerow in Waterloo Park, which a fire crew from Sprowston attended at 11.04pm, soon followed by another hedgerow in nearby Copenhagen Way, which a fire crew from Earlham attended at 11.13pm.
Then a third hedgerow was set alight in Blomefield Road, which a fire crew from Sprowston attended at 11.47pm.
The crews used hose reel jets to extinguish all three fires but needed a hydrant to help extinguish the Waterloo Park fire.
