There has been a sudden increase in deliberately started fires across Bramcote Park on Ilkeston Road.
Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service said:
‘We’ve placed our joint police and fire drone team on standby.
‘They are able to quickly search the wooded area and fields, with high-powered cameras and inferred equipment.
‘This can not only help bring blazes under control, by directing our firefighters on the ground, but also recording and catching suspects.
‘We need these blazes to stop as quickly as they have been started.’
