ATF looking for people who set fires during Baltimore riots

BALTIMORE (AP) — Federal law enforcers are asking for the public's help in identifying people who set fires at stores and an under-construction senior center during the Baltimore riots in the wake of Freddie Gray's death.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives released photos of several people believed to have set fires in Baltimore on April 27. The fires were set at three pharmacies, a liquor store and a senior center, among other sites.

- CVS Pharmacy, 2509 Pennsylvania Ave.

- CVS Pharmacy, 2560 W. Franklin St.

- Rite Aid Pharmacy, 300 N. Martin Luther King Blvd.

- Papa Palace Pizza and Subs, 2426 East Monument St.

- Harvin Senior Center Apartments, 1600 N. Chester St.

- Cash USA Pawn, 2109 W. Pratt Street

- Fireside North Liquor Store, 2201 W. North Ave

ATF agents say several incendiary devices were built near Pennsylvania and North avenues using materials presumably looted from nearby businesses.

ATF is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone responsible for the crimes.

Anyone with information is urged to call the ATF Hotline at 1-888-ATF-FIRE (1-888-283-3473).
