FBI Offers Reward of Up to $5,000 in Fire Case: FBI & Warm Springs Police Department Work Investigation Jointly

The FBI is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest, and conviction of those responsible for setting a fire on the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs Reservation on June 21, 2021. Warm Springs emergency crews responded to the fire at 8:41 p.m.

The fire burned approximately 42 acres of brush and grass on the Fish Hatchery Grade between mile posts 13 and 14 on Highway 3. Investigators believe the fire was human caused. As part of this publicity effort, the FBI has created a “Seeking Information” poster for the “Most Wanted” section of the FBI’s website. That poster can be found at https://www.fbi.gov/wanted/seeking-info/human-caused-brush-fire/download.pdf.

Facebook and Instagram ads will also be running in the Jefferson and Wasco County areas of Oregon. The FBI and the Warm Springs Police Department (WSPD) are asking that anyone with information about this fire to contact law enforcement. The FBI can be reached in Bend at (541) 389-1202 or in Portland at (503) 224-4181. WSPD can be reached at (541) 553-2202. Information may also be submitted online at tips.fbi.gov.
