Fire fighters have returned to the scene of yesterday's (Monday 8th July) heath blaze at Studland.
Crews are back at Ferry Road this morning dampening down to make sure little hotspots are out to prevent the heath catching alight again.
An investigation has been launched to find out exactly what happened and Fire Chiefs believe it was started on deliberately.
A hectare of trees and gauss has been completely destroyed.60 fire fighters battled the blaze yesterday afternoon and 1 was taken to hospital suffering heat exhaustion.
