TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — On Friday, a fire at the 10000 block of North Leopard Gecko Terrace took out 12 homes under construction.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of persons responsible for the fire.

These fires are a grim reminder of the dangers posed by arson to residents, property, and the firefighters in our communities.

The quick actions by the Northwest Fire District prevented these fires from spreading throughout the area and causing additional damage and injuries.
