$50,000 reward offered in Brentwood town house arson

Brentwood townhouse fire
The Los Angeles City Council has approved a $50,000 reward in a fire that destroyed a Brentwood town house development.

The fire at 12315 W. Gorham Ave. on Thursday consumed a six-unit complex under construction that required 160 firefighters to extinguish.

Though no one was hurt in the blaze, flames and heat from the fire damaged several homes and vehicles nearby.

Investigators later determined the cause of the fire was arson.

Those with information are asked to contact the Los Angeles Fire Department's arson counter-terrorism section at (213) 893-9800.
