Tatura Fire Brigade attend a flare-up on Craven Rd last Tuesday.

The suspicious fire, number 20, was lit on Craven Rd about 4 am the same morning.

CFA fire investigators and a police officer from Mooroopna were at the scene when the second alarm was raised shortly before noon.

Tatura Fire Brigade captain Graeme Dean told the Guardian were becoming frustrating.

‘‘In fact, it (being continually called out) is wearing quite thin,’’ he said.

The brigade was called out to another suspicious fire in the early hours of Wednesday morning, this time on Pyke Rd.

As reported in last week’s Guardian, police are calling on the public for assistance with their inquiries into the spate of suspicious fires in recent weeks between Tatura and Mooroopna.

‘‘Any information, no matter how minor people think it may be, could be that one missing part of the jigsaw puzzle,’’ Tatura police Leading Senior Constable Bill Hayes said.

‘‘Information can be directed to Tatura police on 5824 3099, Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or the Shepparton Criminal Investigation Unit on 5820 5777.’’
