Reward being offered for Agassiz arson leads

School puts out $500 for solid tips to find possible arsonist

ACE is offering a cash reward for information that could help investigators pinpoint who set fire to their building on May 15.

Information must be specific enough to lead to a conviction, said the school administrator Sandy Balascak. To be eligible for the reward, anyone with a tip must be willing to testify if the case were to go to court.

Students and staff were evacuated on the morning of Tuesday, May 15 when a staff member noticed smoke and flames coming from the gas meter at the back of the building.

Had the fire gone on much longer, the building would have been destroyed, and the entire surrounding area would have been evacuated, Fire Chief Wayne Dyer said at the time.

There is no doubt it was a set fire, he said. Balascak threw an industrial sized sack of pancake mix on the gas meter to stop the flames.
