ARSONISTS are believed to be responsible for two bin fires in Felixstowe last night.
One fire crew from Felixstowe was mobilised to Langley Avenue at 7.54pm yesterday where they discovered a rubbish fire.
Firefighters used hose reels to extinguish the blaze and it was brought under control by 8.05pm.
Two crews from Felixstowe were then called out to a bin fire in toilets in Sea Road at 8.50pm.
On arrival, the crews discovered a small fire inside the toilet block, which was extinguished by 9.05pm.

Last month there were a spate of bin fires in the Trimley villages. On one evening three wheelie bins were damaged in High Road in two separate incdients, and another in a car park at the back of flats at St Martins Green, which then spread to a blue BMW, and caused damage to a rear fence and a lean-to garage.
