ATF releases video of person of interest who was near Baltimore blaze that killed three firefighters [VIDEO]



BALTIMORE, MD—The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) Baltimore Field Office has released new video of a “person of interest” who was near the scene of S. Stricker Street fatal fire the evening before it occurred.

The blaze left three firefighters dead.  A $100,000 reward is being offered for information on the case.

At around 6 a.m. on January 24, units responded to a two-alarm fire in the 200-block of S. Stricker Street in Baltimore. A partial building collapse occurred, and six firefighters became trapped inside the vacant home. Two firefighters were extracted with minor injuries, one firefighter was critically injured and transported to the hospital, and three firefighters were fatally injured in the line of duty.

During the investigation that followed, agents obtained surveillance video that shows a person of interest who was around the S. Stricker St. fire scene the evening before the fire occurred and they believe that this person may have information crucial to the investigation.

‘A reward of $100,000 is available for information that leads to the positive identification of this individual. Anyone with information about this person of interest or about the case in general can contact ATF at 888-ATF-TIPS (888-283-8477) or ATFtips@atf gov.
