Firefighters tackled the blazes in the open on Elizabeth Terrace and Orchard Drive at 12.45am and 1.28am.

One hose reel was used to extinguish both fires before crews returned to their station just before 2am.

The cause of the fires is believed to be deliberate - but it is not thought that they are connected.
