 Reward Up to $1000 Offered in Glenbrook Arson Investigation

MUHLENBERG COUNTY, Ky. (01/15/15) – KenCo News was on the scene this morning, Thursday, Jan. 15, as Greenville Fire Department and State Fire Marshall’s Office officials took steps towards finding the cause of the recent fires at Glenbrook.

Deputy State Fire Marshall Phil Fogle and Greenville Fire Chief Jerry Aders informed reporters that they will be spreading the word throughout the Greenville community that local citizens with information on the fires that occurred over the past few days at Glenbrook may receive a sizeable monetary reward.

On Friday, Jan. 9, a fire took place in apartment building 7 at Glenbrook apartments. Four days later, another fire was reported in the same building. The fires cost 8 people their homes, and a considerable amount of personal belongings. In an interview shortly after that, Chief Aders stated that both of the fires were suspicious in nature.

Today firefighters visited Glenbrook again to hang statements on the doors of all buildings adjacent to the burnt building, informing residents that the state, through a program called Target Arson, will be offering a reward up to $1000 for information leading to the arrest and indictment of the individual responsible for the fires.

If you have any information on this case, you may contact the state at 1-800-27-ARSON. Those with information will have the option of remaining anonymous. You may also phone information in to the Greenville Fire Department at 270-338-3305.

Chief Aders also stated that, along with the notices put up at Glenbrook regarding the reward, fliers would be posted throughout the community at local businesses and government locations.

Our local officials are working hard to find the source of this threat.
