GREENFIELD, Ind. — An up to $5,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to an arrest for an arson fire in Greenfield in late May. 

Steve Kropacek, the Greenfield Fire Territory fire marshal, said a family was in a home in the 600 block of South State Street when it caught fire around 12:35 a.m. on May 29.

The family made it out safely, and firefighters were able to extinguish the fire, which was on the outside of the house toward the back. 

In the days following the fire, the Greenfield Fire Territory asked the public to help by checking their home surveillance video or coming forward with any other information they have.

"Any information would be greatly appreciated, no matter how insignificant you think it is," GFT said in its post.

On Tuesday, GFT renewed its call for help and said a reward up to $5,000 is being offered for information leading to the conviction of the person or people involved in this fire.
