Two fires in Wisbech less than 48 hours apart have been confirmed as deliberate by Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue.

One fire took place at a house on William Road in Wisbech last Sunday (March 25) – emergency services were called at around 3pm.

The building was last used to house newspapers and post by Brian Webb Postal Service.

A Cambridgeshire Police spokesman said: “Scenes of crime officers have attended the area and an investigation into the incident is ongoing.

“The cause of the fire was deliberate.”

The next blaze was at a sports pavilion in Wisbech – fire crews were called from March and Wisbech at around 6.45pm to the pavilion on Harecroft Road.

A fire service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a fire in the sports pavilion which had spread to the roof.

“Short extension ladders were also used to remove tiles from the roof.”

The spokesman confirmed: “The cause of the fire was deliberate.”
