Arson Ruled As Cause Of San Marcos Apartment Fire

Federal investigators are offering a $10,000 reward for help in tracking down those responsible for setting fire to a San Marcos apartment complex in July, leaving five dead.

Special Agent In Charge Fred Milanowski, with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosive, said at a news conference in San Marcos on Friday that the agency did its best to recreate fire conditions at its national lab in Beltsville, Maryland.

Samples and witness interviews were collected over 10 days at the Iconic Village Apartments fire on July 20, he said.
