Round-Up: CSPD offers reward for Waldo Canyon Fire info; Tri-Lakes Monument Fire may have to turn down grant

September 20, 2012

Colorado Springs police are offering a reward for information regarding the start of the Waldo Canyon fire. An anonymous donor gave the police 100,000 for a reward fund, and the money will be distributed based on tips that lead to identification and arrests. Officials announced earlier this month the fire was human-caused, but they had no suspects. At that time, they also said they weren’t sure if the start of the blaze was accidental or intentional.

Tri-Lakes Monument Fire Protection District may not be able to accept a FEMA grant recently awarded to the department.
