Arson investigators are still looking for answers now weeks after declaring four fires suspicious in Nicholasville.

Nicholasville Police are asking for your help in solving the crime and they are even offering more money than before.

Four suspicious fires all within just a block from one another. The first two fires involved a detached garage and a vehicle on December 17th on Stephens drive. Just over a week later, on December 25th, a barn was found on fire on Third and Mill Street. The barn fire also damaged three nearby homes.

"The residents were with substantial hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage with these fires alone so far," says officer Kevin Grimes, of the Nicholasville Police Department.

On December 25th, a 911 call was made large, reporting a large box truck on fire nearby. Arson investigators have deemed all four of these fires suspicious and need your help finding those responsible. The reward money has increased from the original $1,000.

Local and state agencies are now offering up to $5,000 dollars for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of someone for these suspicious fires.

Nicholasville Police say they need to track down those who set these fires before the situation can get any worse, "We're just afraid that the individuals are going to escalate and do additional damage," adds Officer Grimes.

If you have any information you asked to call crime stoppers or the Nicholasville Police.

You can choose to remain anonymous. In order to receive any of the reward money, information provided must lead to an arrest and indictment of persons responsible.
