Firefighters have been called back to Beccles after two more fires broke out at the common.
Crews were called to two incidents earlier this week, and this morning the Beccles team attended again with two separate fires starting.
The first was reported at around 6am and saw 12 square metres of gorse alight in an area close to the bypass.
The second was called in at 8.25am, closer to the car park.
A spokesman for the fire service said the fires has started near to the area where they were reported earlier in the week, and at this stage they were unsure of the cause.
