No one was injured and it didn't last long. But a fire in a Brick Township playground last month remains an open case, and now two members of the governing body are dipping into their pockets for $1,000 to help solve it.

Councilmen Jim Fozman and Domenick Brando, in rapid succession, have offered personal rewards of $500 each for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect of suspects connected to the November 21 blaze at Colorado Park, nestled at the end of Colorado Avenue.

Police Sergeant Keith Reinhard says that the crew in Herbertsville Fire Station 24 smothered the flames. Investigators later determined that the fire did not start naturally, and labeled it suspicious.

The probe is being managed by Brick PD Detective Ken Steinberg. He is accepting information in confidence at 732-262-1120.
