What has the fire detective come up with this time? We have had a glass bottle burning down an entire house in daylight when everyone was home during lockdown.

We have had a fire resistant gas meter box burn to bits because of a fag butt, despite being surrounded by brick pavers and a solid wall.

Now the leaves, what was that, friction from mating hedge hogs?

These people need to get OUT of the college class room ‘theory’ suggestions and use eyes, and common sense. Sadly NO courses for the latter.

martin-To my eyes the theory of the start of these fires is quite simply chav scum brats. Maybe it’s because they are not allowed to say who they really think it was.Like you say a bit of common needed. Looks to be the latest pass time of the scum just lately, causing arson.
