welcome mate, don't think it's common but there are some people here who can answer it better than I. Hopefully they'll chime in.

Accessory lights? Extra lights above and beyond the factory lights? If so, sounds like a grounding issue. Or the fuse can't handle the extra load from the lights. I'd say try a 20 amp fuse, but that may lead to melted wires if it is a ground issue.

+1 Ground issue. If they're add-on lights, can you just re-run the circuit using existing wiring? You'll likely uncover the problem if you do.
