Warrnambool Fire Brigade fire officer David Ferguson said there was a small grass and scrub fire near the wooden lookout at the Flume, which was reported to emergency services at 1.30am.

He said about a dozen volunteers took only minutes to bring the fire under control.

There was another small fire in the same area earlier this week on a footpath.

The fire brigade has referred the matters to police, who are believed to be treating the causes as suspicious.

Detective Senior Constable Jason Bourke, of the Warrnambool police crime investigation unit, said it was of obvious concern that two fires had been lit in an area where there was a large amount of flammable material.

He said there was also a fire believed to have been deliberately lit on a wooden bench at Our Lady Help Of Christians Church, Selby Road, on Thursday.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Warrnambool police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
