Idaho authorities seek person responsible for motel fire

Idaho law enforcement has asked the public for help in finding the person responsible for starting a fire that burned a motel built in the 1950s.

The Coeur d’Alene Press reports authorities are offering a cash reward in exchange for information leading to the identification and arrest of the person or people responsible for the July fire at the Garden Motel.

Officials say the motel about 30 miles east of Spokane was closed at the time of the fire.

Police and fire investigators say no one was injured, but the fire charred a large portion of the motel.

Officials say the building was purchased in 2002 and closed in 2016 to build a $14 million, 113-room Marriott Fairfield Inn and a neighboring 22 multi-family structure.
