Two youths were caught by police after a shed fire at Landcare Research in Lincoln on Friday.

The fire was discovered in a small shed on the site at about 1pm.

Senior Sergeant Dean Harker said two youths were located nearby and have been referred to a youth services agency.

He said the fire started after the youths allegedly dragged some rubbish from outside the shed then set fire to it.

"It was not a large fire and it was able to be put out in a short amount of time," Senior Sergeant Harker said.
