Police are investigating the cause of a large hay stack fire on farm land in Rougham, near Bury St Edmunds.
Crews prevented the blaze from spreading to surrounding fields and livestock last night.
Initial investigations suggested a number of separate fires were started deliberately on land off Mount Road.
Mark Hardingham, Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service chief fire officer, said: “It’s unbelievable that these fires would be started, given the current weather and weeks of crop and field fires. We will work with Suffolk police to find the arsonists.”
