ANNAPOLIS, MD—Governor Larry Hogan on Saturday announced that the State of Maryland would double the reward first announced by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) Baltimore Field Division for information about a person of interest in the fatal Baltimore fire that led to the deaths of three firefighters earlier this week.

“As we continue to mourn our fallen heroes, we are conducting an aggressive investigation into the cause of the fire that took their lives,” said Governor Hogan.  “In coordination with our federal and local partners, the state is immediately doubling the reward for information in the case to $100,000. We urge anyone with tips or information regarding the person of interest to contact federal or state authorities.”

“I want to thank all Marylanders for the tremendous outpouring of support for our firefighters and their loved ones,” Governor Hogan added.

A GoFundMe page has been established to help the families of those lost in the fire.
