FIREFIGHTERS were called out after a bag of rubbish was set alight in an area of woodland.

One crew from Cosham was sent to put out a fire in Foxes Forest, behind Ackworth Road, Hilsea, just before 10pm last night. Watch manager Ian Sales said: ‘Though the incident is being treated as suspicious an investigation is not being carried out because it was just a small fire.’
