THREE fires were maliciously set off at a beauty spot.
Firefighters were called to Havant Thicket, which is a stretch of woodland and fields between Leigh Park and Rowlands Castle.
The call came in at about 3.40pm yesterday.
A crew from Havant fire station found three separate grass fires.
A hose reel was used to put out each blaze.
Youths are believed to have started the fires, which were put out in a matter of minutes.
