ATF offering reward for fatal April fire

Investigators from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives have reissued a reward for information leading to arrest for the April 17 arson fire that killed two in a Milwaukee apartment. 

The reward is up to $5,000.  This reward was initially announced on April 28.

On April 17, at approximately 3:18 AM the Milwaukee Police Department and Milwaukee Fire Department were dispatched to the 2400 block of N. 38 Street, for the report of a duplex apartment fire.  Following completion of the fire suppression, two adult occupants were found deceased inside the lower apartment.

Investigators are seeking the public’s help in solving this crime and are hopeful that the reward will provide additional leads in this investigation.

Anyone having information about the arson should call the toll free Wisconsin Arson hotline at (800) 362-3005 or the Milwaukee Police Department at (414) 935-7360.  Callers may remain anonymous.
