PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- The FBI offered a reward of up to $10,000 Thursday for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of whoever was responsible for an arson fire that killed one person and injured two others last May at a home in Warm Springs.

The Warm Springs Police Department responded to a fire in a home located at 1713 Foster Street around 11:05 p.m. on May 17.

When the officers arrived, they saw flames shooting 15 feet out the front living room window. 

Officers entered the burning home, removed two victims and provided medical assistance until paramedics arrived. Lamont Brown, age 77, died of his injuries following transport to a medical facility.

The second adult victim removed from the residence suffered critical injuries. A third resident was able to exit the residence on her own but suffered serious burn injuries. A fourth person was able to escape through a ground-floor window and was uninjured.

Investigators with the Warm Springs Fire Department, Jefferson County Fire District No. 1 and the Oregon State Fire Marshal's Office ruled the fire an arson. The FBI and Warm Springs Police Department are jointly investigating the case.

As part of this publicity effort, the FBI has created a "Seeking Information" poster which can be found at and a Facebook posting.

Anyone with information concerning the fire is asked to contact the FBI in Bend at (541) 389-1202 during normal business hours, the FBI in Portland at (503) 224-4181 24 hours a day, or the Warm Springs Police Department at (541) 553-3272. Information may also be submitted online at

  1. lord barney you shouldnt even have posted that here. half the idiots will think it’s all Trumps doing, a quarter of the stooges with ms13 antifa death squads. the rest will want all the files from the case sent to their personal emails so they can do their own evaluations. how the police handled the case, and of course how you presented it

      1. Crime was committed last May and the FBI just now ramping up the investigation asking for the public’s help. And people have the nerve to question the bureau’s impeccable integrity . But first you’ll have to look past the agents facing charges ranging from obstruction to leaking classified info. Ignore the school shooting tips they failed to act on or the 11% drop in their conviction rate. Rest easy America they’re on the case

    1. They should look at people who hate indians. Oh wait, that would be all of estern Oregon. Soooooooo much failing. Oh, and lying too!!! 2 for 1 !!
      golf and a whore anyone!!! campaign donors are buying!!!! trump / Putin 2020!!!!

    2. KTVZ really needs a questionnaire or a test for people like this to fill out before they can register and leave a comment. The questions really wouldn’t have to be that difficult. “Who was the first President of the United States?” “Who was the second President of the United States?” “Approximately how close would you say you are to the nearest Baskin-Robbins?” “How soon could you get there if you left right now?” “Do you think you could sample all 31 flavors in less than an hour?” “I heard that a Democrat sampled all 31 flavors in less than 43 minutes while a Republican was only able to sample all 31 flavors in just under 52 minutes. Do you think you can accomplish sampling all 31 flavors in less than 52 or 43 minutes?” “Please elaborate.”

    3. or, people can make an attempt to act like vaguely mature individuals with the potential for intellectual growth… you might as well be the first and set a positive example –
