Boulder: Reward fund in fraternity firebomb case now $4,000

BOULDER, Colorado ” A reward for information regarding the firebombing of a fraternity house about a block from the University of Colorado campus in Boulder is now $4,000 as authorities continue to look for clues in the case.

Boulder police, the Interfraternity Council, Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers and the University of Colorado increased the reward fund by $1,000 on Thursday.

Authorities say they’re still seeking help from the public to find the person who tossed an incendiary device through an open door of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon house at about 2:15 a.m. on Oct. 3. Police said the device consisted of a jug of charcoal lighter fluid with a burning firecracker attached.

Someone inside the house pushed the firebomb back outside with a wet mop.

No one was hurt.
