SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The Federal Bureau of Investigation along with the Joint Terrorism Task Force are offering a 10-thousand dollar reward in the West Jordan lumberyard arson.

Investigators say they're offering the reward for information leading to the arrest of a suspect in connection with the June 14th fire at Stock Building Supply.

The fire caused one-point-five (m) million dollars in damage and is being investigated as a case of eco-terrorism.

A fax from a radical environmental group called the Earth Liberation Front said the lumberyard was targeted because it had ignored warnings to repair forklifts that emitted more pollution than diesel engines.

Federal investigators say they hope the reward will encourage those with information to come forward.
