The reward for information leading to the arrest of the person responsible for setting the fires in Greenwood is now up to $25,000.
The insurance company for Taproot Theatre chipped in $15,000 today to help track down the arsonist. “We recognize the impact the fires have on our entire community, from the businesses who lost everything on October 23 to the fear the fires have instilled in many others,” said Taproot’s producing artistic director, Scott Nolte. “It is our hope that the crimes will be solved before any more arsons are committed.” Taproot was damaged during the 3-alarm fire on October 23rd fire that destroyed the Green Bean Coffeehouse.
If you have information that could help lead investigators to the arsonist you’re urged to call local authorities or the arson hotline at 1-800-55-ARSON.
