Reward offered for information on apartment fires

The Rochester Fire Department is asking for the public's help in connection with repeated fires at Meadow Park Apartments in southeast Rochester.

A reward is being offered for information about four small fires that have been set in a second-floor hallway since Sunday. The most recent fire was set at 10 p.m. Tuesday.

The fires have been extinguished, but they're getting bigger, raising concerns, according to Assistant Fire Marshal Larry Mueller. Rewards range from $100 to $2,000 depending on the information, Mueller said.

It doesn't appear that anyone in particular is the target of the fires, which have been set on the same end of the hallway, Mueller said.

On Tuesday, residents put out the fire with a bucket of water. When firefighters arrived, they learned about two other, unreported fires on the floor, one in which trash was burned on Sunday and another in which a rug was burned Tuesday afternoon.
