Police are appealing for witnesses after another fire was deliberately started in Dumfries and Galloway.
Sometime between 22 and 29 September a new flat-packed garden shed was set on fire and completely destroyed.
It happened at a storage site in the Maxwelltown Industrial Estate in Dumfries, and the shed was worth around £500.
This was a reckless act which could have had some serious implications if other items or property in the yard had caught fire. Those responsible have had to break into the yard in order to carry out this act.
We are appealing to anyone who may seen any suspicious activity in the Maxwelltown Industrial Estate area over the past week to call us here at Dumfries on 101."
It follows an appeal the police sent out yesterday, after two other fires in the region which are thought to have been started deliberately:
Roadworks for a new traffic system at Three Road Ends in Dumfries is expected to cause major delays.
The work will start on Monday 12 October, lasting for three weeks through the school holidays.
The new traffic system is hoped to ease congestion and benefit drivers in the long term.
Whether you are driving to work, cycling to the university and college or taking the bus to a hospital appointment, please be understanding of the situation. Plan ahead and give yourself extra time to complete your journey. I am confident the new traffic signal equipment will ease congestion in the area long-term."
Fifty-four pupils from Dalbeattie Academy have returned home, after they were caught up in a bus crash on a school trip to France:

He is around six-feet tall, of medium build with hazel eyes and receding short blond hair.
Anyone who may have spoken to Kristian recently, or knows of his current whereabouts is asked to contact us through the 101 system."
Pupils and staff involved in a bus crash, while on a school trip to France, arrived back in Dumfries and Galloway today.
Eight pupils and one teacher from Dalbeattie High School were taken to hospital following the crash in Normandy on Monday.
The teacher had to be cut from the bus, and suffered serious leg injuries, but the pupils have all now been discharged.
Fifty-four students from Dalbeattie were on the trip.

Police are appealing for witnesses after two suspicious fires in Dumfries and Galloway.
First, the front door and letterbox of a flat in Kirkcudbright were damaged by fire at around 3pm on Tuesday 29 September.
A neighbour extinguished the flames at the flat on Dee Road, and police now believe it was started deliberately.
The consequences of such a reckless act don't bear thinking about in this case. We want to hear from anyone who may have seen anyone acting suspiciously around the Dee Road area, and in particular in the vicinity of the flats around 1500 hours yesterday. Callers with information should call us at Kirkcudbright on 101."
Another incident was reported at 12:20am today (Wednesday 30 September), when a car in Dumfries was set on fire.
The red Vauxhall Corsa was found in flames on Wallamhill Road in Locharbriggs, and was seriously damaged.
Extensive enquiries are being made into this reckless act and we are keen to trace a man who was seen in the vicinity the time of the fire. He is described as being white, in his early to mid 30s, stocky build, short dark hair and was wearing a black hooded tracksuit top with a black t-shirt underneath, black tracksuit bottoms and trainers. This man was walking three dogs, an alsatian, a black labrador and a small white dog. Anyone with any information which might help should call us at Dumfries on 101."
