LIVES could have been put in danger last night as firefighters were called out maliciously.
An engine was called to open land off Halstead Road, Wymering, to reports of a fire.
However, when firefighters got there at about 6pm no fire was found.
Later in the evening at about 7pm a crew from Southsea went to tackle a small fire in Bransbury Park, Eastney.
It took a matter of minutes to put out the bonfire and make the scene safe.
