The first incident happened in Kelly Road on Saturday at about 10.10pm with two crews attending from Princes Street.

A fire on the ground floor was extinguished within half an hour by two firefighters wearing breathing apparatus and using a hose reel.

This is being investigated by police as the fire is of a suspicious nature.

The second incident saw two crews, again from Princes Street, tackling a blaze in London Road.

Two firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used a hose reel and a covering jet to bring the incident under control by 11.23.

At 4.34am on Sunday two crews from Princes Street attended a third incident, this time in All Saints Road.

They found the fire was already out when they arrived and made the house safe.
