Fire crews were called out to a spate of wheelie bin fires in Great Yarmouth last night - with one fire scorching a nearby building.
Norfolk fire and rescue service confirmed that one crew attended four wheelie bin fires on Hall Quay at 10.53pm on Wednesday.
The stock came back just over ten minutes later, with the fire service confirming that police were not at the scene and no injuries were recorded.
A further crew then attended another wheelie bin fire on Howard Street South an hour later.
It is not yet known whether arson was involved.
