FIREFIGHTERS were called to tackle a hedge fire in Thatcham last night which they believe was started deliberately.
Crews arrived at the scene in Mount Road at around 1am to find the back garden hedge ablaze.
The owner had already attempted to dowse the flames with a bucket of water.
Firefighters promptly extinguished the flames and are treating the incident as arson.
No one was injured in the incident and no further property damage was caused.
