The first arson saw a bin set on fire at a bus stop at the junction of Manor Road and Flowerpot Lane in Long Stratton at between 8.30pm and 9.15pm on Wednesday, March 30.
Then a chicken shed was destroyed at a farm off Church Lane in Stratton St Michael between 4pm and 6pm on March 31.
A stack of straw bales was set on fire.
The fire spread to the large chicken shed, which had no livestock in at the time.

The two boys will appear at Norwich Youth Court on Tuesday, July 26 for their first hearing.
