TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - A $10,000 reward is now being offered for a dozen unsolved arson cases in Toledo.
The Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms recently contributed to the reward for any tips that will lead to a conviction.
Fire investigators say they're looking for a family, gang or group setting the fires that are mainly targeting vacant homes.
Two homes on Wasaon Street in south Toledo made their arson list in April. Neighbors there want these fires to stop.
"To me, I think it's scrappers." said neighborhood resident Shawn Brocious. "They'll get the houses that are abandoned where they can't reach the siding anymore, and they got as far as they could get. They'll burn 'em down so the fire department will come. They were circling these places waiting for the fire department to leave."
Here are the addresses where current arson investigations are ongoing:
Anyone with information that could help the investigation is asked to call Crime Stopper at 419-255-1111.
