Firefighters were called to two rubbish fires last night and another this afternoon.

Arsonists set fire rubbish in Helmsley Way, Corby, at about 12.15pm today and to a recycling skip in Cambridge Street, Wellingborough, at 8.45pm yesterday.

Firefighters were also called to a small rubbish fire in John Clark Way, Rushden, at about 7.35pm yesterday.

Firefighters from Corby put out today’s fire, which they believe was started deliberately, with a hose.

A crew from Wellingborough Fire Station used a low pressure jet to put out the skip fire, which the fire service said was aslo started deliberately, and damage was limited to the bin.

A crew from Rushden Fire Station used a hose to put out the small quantity of burning rubbish. The cause of the fire was unknown.
