ST. CLOUD -- Multiple garbage dumpsters were on fire in South St. Cloud yesterday (Monday). It's the most recent incident in a string of similar fires that have occurred over the past few months.

The St. Cloud Police Department says the fires were put out before they were able to cause any damage to nearby apartment buildings and homes around 1:00 p.m.

The Minnesota Aarson Awareness Program is offering a reward of up to $2,500 for information that leads to identifying the persons responsible for the fires.

If you have any information about the fires you're asked to contact the Arson Hot Line at 1-800-723-2020.
