Alaska Fire Officials Seek Help Solving Suspicious Fire

May 23, 2013

Fire investigators in Anchorage are asking for help in solving a suspicious restaurant fire.

The Anchorage Daily News reports the Sunrise Grill and Pancake House suffered about $1 million in damage on May 11. Whether it’s a total loss will be determined by the insurance carrier and business owner.

Anchorage Fire Dept. spokesman Al Tamagni says in a statement that evidence found at the scene leads investigators to believe there was a burglary at the restaurant before the fire.

They are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 561-7867 or the arson hotline at 267-5060. Crime Stoppers is offering a reward up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest on felony charges.
