The Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry, the state Fire Marshal's Office, and local authorities are seeking information on 86 suspected arsons.  Ag Commissioner Mike Strain says the suspicious fires happened between August 30th and October 21st.

"These fires began in the Castor community in Bienville Parish and progressed east through the Liberty Hill area and east to North Hodge in Jackson Parish."

Investigators have determined that a majority of these fires occurred on properties owned by timber company Weyerhaeuser Industries.  Strain says a substantial reward is being offered for information leading to the capture for these arsonists...

"The Louisiana Forestry Association and Weyerhaeuser have put up a $4,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and the conviction of the people or person responsible for these arsons."

Strain says arson is a serious crime that comes with serious penalties...

"Not only is it a criminal activity, for which you will go to jail, but you will also have to pay full restitution.  Pay for what you have destroyed."
