$250,000 reward now offered
The Orange County Fire Authority confirmed today that the reward offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the Santiago Canyon arson fire is now up to $250,000, up by $100,000 thanks to a donation from the radio station KFI-AM 640, an agency spokeswoman said.
"This brings the reward to a quarter of a million dollars. Let's hope this helps bring someone forward to solve this terrible crime," Robin Bertolucci, program director of KFI, said in a statement.
The money has come from various law enforcement agencies such as the FBI and private donations such as the radio station, said Olivia Moeller, a fire authority spokeswoman.
The arson tip line is at (800) 540-8282.
