Reward Increases For Opry Fire Information

Last updated on Tuesday, October 20, 2009

(NASHVILLE, IN) - The reward has increased to $30,000 for information leading to the conviction of those involved in setting the fire that gutted the Little Nashville Opry in Brown County in September.

The venue's insurance provider, Indiana Insurance, announced a $25,000 reward Monday.

That's in addition to the Indiana Department of Homeland Security's $5,000 offer for any information given on their arson hotline (800-382-4628).

The September 19th fire started around the stage of the Little Nashville Opry and caused $3 million dollars damage to the music hall that had been a Brown County fixture since 1975.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the State Fire Marshal and Brown County Sheriff's Office are investigating the blaze.

A team of ATF investigators determined the Opry fire was intentionally set.
