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:

  • 1601 Navarre
  • 267 Sumner
  • 254 & 258 Wasaon
  • 1570 Tecumseh
  • 532 South Ave.
  • 3019 Ontario
  • 2214 Chase
  • 861 McKinley
  • 3345 Glenwood
  • 531 Potter
  • 956 Forsyth
  • 1101 Norwood
  • 1131 Fernwood
  • 27 Streicher
  • 421 Oak
  • 527 Walden

Anyone with information that could help the investigation is asked to call Crime Stopper at 419-255-1111.
