    Reward offered in string of arsons in southeast Seattle

    (Seattle-AP) -- Fire and police officers are investigating a
    series of seven arsons in southeast Seattle over the past two
    weeks. Fire officials say the fires are becoming more frequent and
    more dangerous.
    The Seattle Fire Department is offering a reward of up to ten
    thousand dollars for information leading to an arson conviction.
    Five car fires and two attempts at building fires have been set
    in a three-block area of Martin Luther King Junior Way South.
    Total damage is more than 11-thousand-500 dollars. Nobody has
    been hurt.

    One question....where does the money come from? Is this built into the budget?

    Update August 7th

    SEATTLE (AP) - A fire that gutted a two-story home in the north
    Seattle suburb of Lake Forest Park has been ruled an arson.
    The fire is the 15th suspicious Seattle-area blaze in a week.
    The other 14 occurred in North Seattle. Of those, 13 have been
    confirmed as arsons.
    The Lake Forest Park blaze is prompting investigators to
    consider whether a recent Seattle arson spree could be spreading
    farther north.
    "It fits within the pattern. We wouldn't be looking at it if it
    didn't," said Doug Dawson, assistant special agent in charge of
    the Seattle office of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and
    Explosives.
    In this case, a family of three was sleeping inside. As they
    scrambled to get out, a neighbor who had spotted the flames called
    911.
    "The people that were in the house didn't have time to call,"
    said Deputy Northshore Fire Chief John Lapsansky. "They had to
    save themselves."
    In most of the fires, on-site materials were used to ignite the
    outside of the target building. Lapsansky said officials had not
    yet determined what was used in Friday's fire.
    "There didn't seem to be any debris," he said.
    Lapsansky cautioned that "there has not been a positive link
    between this arson and any other arsons going on."
    The ATF bureau in Seattle has enlisted the help of two crime
    profilers in Washington, D.C. - one an arson specialist, the other
    an expert in the geography of crime scenes. ATF agents from field
    offices in Spokane and Portland also have been called in to help.
    "We're trying to use every available resource we have," Dawson
    said.
    Authorities do not know whether one person is responsible for
    all the arsons.
    "It could be a series of copycat fires," Dawson said.
