Reward increased in Station Fire

Sept. 8, 2009 at 10:46 PM   |   Comments

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 8 (UPI) -- Los Angeles County supervisors Tuesday added $50,000 to the reward for information leading to the arsonist who set the deadly Station Fire.

That brings the total to $150,000, the Los Angeles Times reported. The state had already offered $100,000.

Two firefighters were killed when their truck went over a cliff, and dozens of buildings have been destroyed since the fire began Aug. 26. The fire has burned an area larger than the city of Chicago.

Investigators say they have proof the fire was deliberately set. A source told the Times traces of a substance used to help spread the fire have been discovered.
