The latest was in Queen's Road, Sanquhar on Saturday 30th March. None have yet caused serious damage but officers still suspect that it is the same person setting them.
A Dumfries and Galloway Fire and Rescue spokesman said:
“The fires were all put out by the firefighters using beaters and hoses. The causes of the fires have been put down as suspected to be deliberate by an unknown person or persons.”
