A man has been arrested following two fires in Melbourne's south-east.

Two properties were set alight within minutes of each other in Clayton overnight.

Emergency services were called to Beddoe Avenue just before 1am following reports of two shed fires at the two properties, which were located around 100m apart.

Police confirmed a 42-year-old Wheelers Hill man was arrested following the incident.

They are currently investigating whether the overnight fires are linked to other blazes in the same street in previous months.

Fires were reported on the same street on July 15, August 26, August 27, September 1 and October 21.
