Firefighters were busy throughout yesterday evening and this morning tackling fires in and near St Albans (April 21).
Arsonists set alight a moped on Park View Close at about 11.20pm on April 20 - by the time St Albans firefighters got to the blaze only the frame was left standing.
It took no more than 15 minutes to put out the fire with backpack sprayers.
In a separate incident yesterday, the St Albans crew were called to a small bonfire on Griffiths Way in St Albans at about 5.20pm.
Hosereels were used to extinguish this blaze, which was also deliberately set alight.
