MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Minneapolis police are asking for the public’s help in solving an arson fire early this month at a home once owned by Gov. Mark Dayton.

Police and Crime Stoppers of Minnesota announced Thursday a reward of up to $6,000 for information that leads to an arrest and conviction in the case.

Dayton has not lived in the house on East Lake Harriet Boulevard for 20 years. Police say it’s not clear if Dayton’s ties to the residence played a role in the arson. Police are investigating.

To provide anonymous information to Crime Stoppers regarding the fire, call 1-800-222-8477 or go to the Crime Stoppers website at wwww.crimestoppersmn.org

The house was occupied at the time of the July 2 fire, but no one was seriously hurt.
