An 18-year-old has made a second appearance in court in connection with charges of wilful fireraising at the Gramps in Aberdeen.
Emergency services were called to Tullos Hill and Redmoss to deal with incidents on multiple occasions last month.
And following the spate of blazes, Ryan Smith appeared in Aberdeen Sheriff Court where he faced four charges of wilful fireraising.
He was also charged with having a knife in a public place.
Smith, of Aberdeen, made no plea and has been released on bail to return to court at a later date.
Inspector Chris Kerr of the Torry Community Policing Team is urging anyone with information about the fires to get in touch.
He said: “We are very grateful for the information that we have received from members of the public so far.
“I would urge anyone who thinks they may have encountered any suspicious activity in the area during this period to contact us on 101.”
Information can also be passed anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
