Fire crews from Dalkeith attended two deliberate fires within the space of an hour on Monday April 16.
The alarm was raised just after 9pm to Bogwood Road, where a number of bins had been set alight. The fire was under control by 9.30pm.
Then 15 minutes later, the firefighters attended at Coronation Place, where a three-piece suite was on fire.
The crew used a high pressure hose reel to extinguish the flames and the fire was out by 9.55pm.
