Arsonists caused thousands of pounds worth of damage after torching cars in Costessey.
The fires were started in the early hours of yesterday (Monday) morning on the Horizon Works industrial estate off Dereham Road, close to the Total garage.
Norfolk police said a red Toyota MR2 was set alight at about 1.30am. The flames spread to a nearby Chrysler Neon and then to a shed used by a joinery business, destroying several pieces of woodwork.
A second vehicle in the area - a Renault 5 Turbo which was being restored - was also set alight. That fire also spread to another vehicle, a VW Sharan.
Two men wearing light coloured hooded tops were seen in the area around the time of the blazes.
They are described as white, of slim to medium build, aged in their late teens or early 20s.
Both were seen to run from the scene along Mayfly Way towards Bowthorpe.
Police would like to hear from anyone who saw the fires or has information about them.
