Today, Rockfod Fire Department investigator Bill Hyde joins me in asking your help to solve an arson fire which took place at the fountain of life academy, which is located in the former Rock River school building, at 2729 Kishwaukee Street. Rockford fire department units were dispatched to the scene at approximately 10:30 pm. Thursday, January 10, 2008. Upon arrival fire fighters found areas on 2nd and 3rd floors heavily involved in flames and subsequently fought the fire for several hours before the building was safe for investigators to enter. Investigators determined the building was secure before the fire and that no less than tree separate fires were intentionally set in the affected areas. The damages resulting from this fire are in excess of $100,000 dollars. Crime Stoppers will pay a cash reward of $1,000 for information which solves this crime. If you have any information regarding other criminal activity or wanted subjects call crime stoppers at 963-7867 or 1-888-769-STOP. Remember crime stopper phones do not have caller ID, and they never ask your name.
