Arsonists Burn Six Acres At Blue Hills Reservation

RANDOLPH (CBS) – Investigators are offering a $5000 for help catching an arsonist who’s setting fires in one of the Boston area’s most popular hiking areas.

The Fire Marshal’s office says someone deliberately set two fires in the Blue Hills Reservation.

The fires burned about six acres.

Officials say these fires were set in isolated areas, but the conditions are so dry, they could easily spread out of control.
