County considering $50,000 reward for Station fire information
Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael Antonovich is calling for a $50,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the Station fire arsonist.
Authorities have determined that the now-160,357-acre blaze was deliberately ignited about a mile above the Angeles Crest Fire Station in La Cañada Flintridge.
The total cost of all firefighting operations for the blaze reached $57.6 million by Tuesday morning, up from estimates of $27 million on Friday, the U.S. Forest Service said.
It has so far caused two deaths and 10 injuries and has destroyed 78 homes, 86 non-residential “outbuildings” (barns, sheds, etc.) and two commercial properties, the Forest Service said.
Anotnovich’s motion will go before the county’s Board of Supervisors at its meeting tonight.
