IT WAS a busy few hours for firefighters who were called to two deliberate fires.

The first was in a bin at the back of the Masonic Hall, in Clarence Road, at 2am today. Just a short while later a bin in St Ann’s Crescent, close to the railway line, was also set on fire.

Firefighters from Gosport station put them out quickly. They were both arson.
