A group of mindless yobs started fires to residents' bins along a Doncaster road in the middle of the night.
Fire fighters from Doncaster station were initially called out to a single bin fire on Carr Hill in Balby at around 3am.
But the station received two further reports of bin fires and a skip being set ablaze further down the road soon after. One more crew from Doncaster had to be called out to deal with the extra incidents.
A South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue spokesman said the incidents were 'linked' and were set alight in a short space of time.
Anyone with any information on the arson attacks, call police on 101.
