FOUR suspected arson attacks took place within hours of each other in a local village this week.
Firefighters from St Albans were called to St Leonards Crescent in Sandridge on Tuesday night at 9.50pm and 11.15pm to put out two separate blazes in a block of unused garages.
Then, as they were on their way back to the station at about midnight, they were called to a moped on fire in nearby St Heliers Road.
At 5.50am the following morning the crew were called to St Leonards Crescent where one of the garages had been set on fire again.
The same block of garages was also targeted by arsonists on June 19.
Police are investigating the incident and are stepping up high-visibility patrols in the area.
