The fire was extinguished by use of water buckets however services are treating the fire as suspicious.
Local councillor Roger Fern said: “It is extremely disappointing that people would do this.
“All sorts of efforts are made to make facilities in the area of a high standard and clearly some people haven't appreciated this.
“The fact that it was done after darkness shows the cowardliness of these individuals.”
