ARSONISTS are believed to be behind several fires in Gosport.

Fire crews from Gosport fire station went to a blaze at Browndown Ranges, in Gosport, yesterday at 2.20pm. Two areas of grass, about 5sq m each, had been set alight.

A fire service spokesman said they had been called to at least four similar incidents over the past fortnight, which they believe were arson.
