BEDFORD (CBSDFW.COM) - Bedford’s Fire Chief tells CBS 11 that a post-Christmas fire is being investigated as arson.

On December 26, a two alarm fire broke out at a building on Bedford Road east of Brown Trail.  No one was hurt.  The building had, at one point, been a business.

Fire Chief James Tindell says the fire was “very suspicious” because the building had no electricity and it had been condemned about a year ago.

Chief Tindell tells CBS 11 the burned out structure was demolished because of safety issues before New Year’s Day.  An apartment complex and elementary school are within a block of the fire scene.

A fence has been set up around the perimeter.  A large sign out front alerts people driving or walking in the area about the arson investigation.  A reward of up to $1,000 is being offered  for information leading to an arrest and indictment in the case.  People with tips can call the Bedford Fire Department at 817-952-2127.

Chief Tindell says it’s not unusual for the department to offer rewards in arson cases.
