A HOMEowner was furious after a mysterious neighbor lit four fires in a MONTH that left his house smoking.

The man – who asked to remain anonymous – said his home in Earl Shilton, Leicestershire, was filled with smoke from a nearby bonfire.

But Bosworth Borough Council has so far been unable to find out who is responsible for the bushfires, which have struck around 12 times in just three months.

People tell Leicestershire Live: “I don’t think we would have bought the property if we had known that this would be such an issue.

“It looks like this will be an ongoing issue and not the beginning in terms of enforcement. I don’t know how it will be resolved.”

Police attended nearby allotments earlier this year to try to figure out who started the fires.

But the police could not find the culprit.

An earlier council statement read: “The difficulty is that fires sometimes occur in the evenings and weekends.

“We have written to the owners of some of the land that we believe is burning to inform them that claims have been made to avoid further fires.”

Councils can issue notices asking residents to stop setting fires if they are deemed a “statutory nuisance”.

But with no known culprit, that road is impassable – leaving landowners desperate.

Leicestershire Live has contacted council for an update.
