Posted: Updated:
JAMAICA, Vt. -

Authorities say a fire in Jamaica was arson and they're offering a cash reward to nab the suspect behind the blaze.

Early Thursday morning firefighters were called to 322 Old Route 8 to find the garage and a car fully engulfed in flames. Police say the tenant and a friend escaped the building through a window and called 911.

Crews put out the fire before it spread to nearby homes. No one was hurt but investigators determined the fire was intentionally set.

The arson caused about $150,000 dollars in damages. Anyone with information is asked to call the arson tip line or state police. Authorities are offering up to a $5,000 reward leading to an arrest.
