(Philadelphia, Pa.) A series of small arson fires at a Center City residential high-rise building has prompted a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the culprit, authorities said Friday.

The fires were set at the Sterling Apartment Homes, at 1815 John F. Kennedy Blvd., between July 13 and Aug. 3, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives reported. They were started in various places on the fifth through ninth floors, ATF said. No one was injured and the fires were quickly extinguished by the building’s sprinkler system.

ATF and the building’s management company, Aimco, are contributing to the reward. Anyone with information can call the ATF at 888-ATF-FIRE or visit reportit.com.
