Police are appealing for witnesses to a series of fires in the Chepstowe and Snake Valley areas on February 6.

Two fires were lit on Browns Lane, near the intersection of Hillcrest and Burrumbeet Road in Snake Valley, between 3.45-4pm.
Then, two other fires were lit on the Chepstowe-Pittong Road at Chepstowe, near the intersection of Carngham-Lake Goldsmith Road, between 4-4.10pm.
Police hope to speak with the driver of a silver or grey Ford Ranger that had been seen in the area at the time. It was last seen travelling along Lightwood Road onto Racecourse Road.
