Police Still Looking for Arsonists

In Ann Arbor, police say that they are still looking for the individuals who caused a series of fires. It has been more than five weeks since fires have been set.

At this time, police say that they do not have any suspects for the arson cases, which started in the beginning of 2010 and included several trash and car fires. All of the fires occurred near student housing areas by the University of Michigan's Central Campus.

Recently, a spokesperson the University's Public Safety department said that that last fires occurred on April 17th, when fours cars were set on fire within a 20 minute time span. Days after the last round of fires, police announced that they had assembled a task force to investigate the arson cases.

Despite ongoing investigations, police say that they have no leads. They are also still waiting on results from the crime laboratory for a house fire that occurred on April 3rd. That incident led to the tragic death of a 22 year University student. At this time, a $5,000 reward is being offered to anyone who has information about the fires or who may have started the fires.
