Arsonists torch two sheds in an hour

An investigation is underway in Ipswich after two sheds were set alight 200 metres apart during the early hours of this morning.

Firefighters from Princes Street were called first at 3.25am to Holbrook Road where a garden shed, measuring six metres by six metres, was in flames.

At around 4.20am, just half an hour after the first blaze was extinguished, Princes Street firefighters were again called to a shed fire, 200 metres away in Robeck Road.

The shed was well alight when a crew arrived to extinguish the flames, which were fully put out by 5.20am.
