The City of Oakland is going on the offensive to catch an arsonist and they’re asking the public to help. Amid a string of residential construction fires from Emeryville to Concord, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf announced a $300,000 reward for information leading to an arson conviction. “In Oakland, we value safety and we need housing,” she told reporters. “We are in a housing crisis.” “We are urging the community to help us identify who is doing this and stop them,” said Greg McConnell, President of the Jobs and Housing Coalition, the group putting up the reward money. However, Monday’s announcement of the reward money did not come with any new information from fire investigators.
