DETECTIVES are probing the cause of two fires which erupted in two sheds on nearby properties south of Tamworth.

Rural Fire Service (RFS) crews were called on Thursday night to extinguish a blaze in a shed off the New England Highway at Timbumburi.

Tools and farm machinery were destroyed in the fire which left a damage bill in the tens of thousands of dollars, while a second fire nearby on a Kia Ora Ln property was extinguished quickly.

Investigations continue.
