Emergency services dealt with two suspected arsons in Great Yarmouth in the early hours of this morning, less than a week after a major blaze ripped through the Regent Superbowl and Indoor Market.
Great Yarmouth police tweeted at 2.25am to say they were at their second deliberate ignition of the night, at the back of the Victoria Arcade.
The building fire on Howard Street South, which began just after 1.50am, saw thee pumps attend and use hose reel jets.
Police said one person was in custody in relation to the incident.
Just an hour earlier, one crew from Great Yarmouth was called to a minor rubbish fire, which was put out using a bucket of water.
It comes less than a week after a major fire destroyed the iconic Regent Superbowl.
Yesterday, Phil Thompson, the landlord of the building said that an ice cream freezer on the first floor may have been the cause of the blaze.
