FIREFIGHTERS believe that two Ipswich fires that broke out today were started deliberately.

A fire crew from Princes Street in Ipswich was called to grass that had caught alight in Landseer Road at about 5.20pm.

But only a few minutes later, another Princes Street crew was called to blazing undergrowth and rubbish in Whitehouse Recreation Ground.

The fires, which are being treated as suspicious, were both under control within about 10 minutes.
