“We believe these fires are connected due to their proximity to one another and the properties being burglarized before being set ablaze,” King said in a statement.

The commissioner asked for anyone with information to call the state’s anonymous tip line at 1-800-282-5804. A reward of up to $10,000 is being offered for information leading to a conviction.
