ARSON is suspected after firefighters in Ellesmere Port tackled garage and shed fires on Saturday (September 24) night.
At 11.30pm, two fire engines from Ellesmere Port fire station attended a garage blaze at Stephens Terrace in Little Sutton.
They used two hose reels to bring the flames under control within 15 minutes.
Crew manager Mark Bridgewater said: “The garage was separate to the property in a yard at the back. It started from the outside of the garage and spread into the garage itself.”
Less than half an hour later, one engine was sent to Princes Road where a shed was well ablaze. One hose reel was used to douse the flames in minutes.
It is suspected both fires were ignited deliberately.
