Firefighters have warned of the dangers of deliberately setting fires in the countryside after they were called out to four blazes across Berkshire within a 20-minute period, including in Ufton Nervet and Calcot.
The callouts were all received on Wednesday this week.
At 8.53pm, crews dealt with a fire in the open at Island Farm Road in Ufton Nervet.
Six minutes later a pushchair was found ablaze in Slough, before firefighters responded to a fire in the woods close to High View in Calcot at 9.02pm.
And then at 9.15pm, another fire in the open was reported in Datchet, near Slough.
Pete Farmer, Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service’s prevention team manager, said: “Fortunately all of these fires were contained effectively by our crews.
“But it is worth reminding people that these fires can easily spread and pose real danger.
“There may also be unseen hazards nearby, such as aerosol cans, paint canister and other chemicals.
“That is danger to our firefighters, but also everyone in the community – and it can be a drain on vital resources.”
Anyone who sees a fire, however small, is asked to call 999 immediately.
