ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) A $2,500 reward is being offered for information that leads to an arrest in arson fires set on back-to-back nights at an apartment building in southwest St. Cloud.

Fires were set early Tuesday morning and again Wednesday morning in the building at 2927 Maine Prairie Road. Assistant

St. Cloud Fire Marshal Lynn Cook says the first fire was set in a window, and was very minor. The second fire was more extensive, damaging a stairwell and taking out of service an emergency exit for the people who live there. Damage from that fire was estimated at $10,000.

Anyone with information on the fires can call the arson hotline at 1-800-723-2020.
