TELLER COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – Investigators say they have identified a suspect in more than two dozen fires intentionally set in Teller County in 2012.

The suspect is not in custody and the person’s name hasn’t been released, but there is a $10,000 reward for information.

The fires were started about the time the Waldo Canyon Fire was ignited in nearby Colorado Springs. That fire destroyed more than 300 homes and killed two people.

Investigators are not saying the Waldo Canyon Fire is tied to the arson cases in Teller County but they are looking at all leads.
