FIREFIGHTERS extinguished two bin fire blazes in Oakridge last night.

A crew from Basingstoke fire station was called to Normanton Road at 4am, where a bin had been set on fire.

This was followed by another report at 5am to a bin fire in a play park off Oakridge Road.

Crew manager Rob Cable said the police were aware of the incidents, and added: “It looks like the same person might have started them both.”
