Wheelie bins were set on fire near to homes in Haverhill - with the flames spreading to a nearby garage.
The string of fires happened in the early hours of Wednesday, May 8 after an officer from Suffolk police found a bin ablaze in Clements Close, Haverhill.
Firefighters would later be called out a further six times, with fires reported in Gloucester Road, Greenfields Way, Clarendon Road, Leiston Road and Harewood Terrace.
A further fire happened again in Greenfields Way, while the bin fire in Harewood Terrace spread to a nearby garage prompted the call out of two further fire engines.
A spokesman for Suffolk police confirmed they believe the fires were started deliberately and are now investigating.
