OXFORD, OH (FOX19) - Authorities have doubled the reward for information on an arson fire at a Miami University fraternity house.

The fire struck the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity house at 130 East High Street on May 25.

A Blue Ribbon Arson Reward sign has been posted at that address offering up to $5,000 for information leading to the identification of the person or persons who may be responsible for the fires.

On Tuesday, officials announced they plan to double that amount to $10,000.

"It is imperative that someone come forward with information," said State Fire Marshal Larry Flowers. "Investigators want to hear from anyone who saw something out of the ordinary at or around the time of the fire or who may have heard someone speaking about the fire with an unusual level of interest or knowledge."

No one was hurt in the fire but the house was destroyed.

Anyone with information, video or photos involving this fire is asked to call the State Fire Marshal's Fire & Explosion Investigation Bureau at 1-800-589-2728 or the Oxford Police Department's tip line at 513-524-5268.
