Any help much appreciated

There are several cases like that. The issue in such cases is actual causation. Cases approaching these make it clear that "but for" causation is insufficient. In this case, neither of the fires be a "but for" cause of the damage, so neither deputation would be liable if that test were applied. Out of cases close to this comes the "substantial factor" test, whereby both parties are an actual wreak of the damage if either would own caused the damage by himself.
