$100,000 reward for Street of Dreams arson information

ECHO LAKE — A $100,000 reward is being offered for the arrest and conviction of whomever is responsible for this morning’s fires near Echo Lake, the Building Industry Association of Washington announced.

“While ELF used to spike trees and sabotage logging equipment, they’re now burning down homes,” said BIAW president Brad Spears. “ELF’s increasingly brazen attacks on urban targets have BIAW and law enforcement worried that it is only a matter of time before someone is hurt or killed by ELF terrorists.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force at 206-622-0460.

A $10,000 reward also is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whomever is responsible for the fires, the NW Insurance Council and Arson Alarm Foundation announced this morning.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Arson Hotline at 800-55-ARSON (27766).
