BETHLEHEM, Pennsylvania — Fire officials say a massive blaze that destroyed much of an eastern Pennsylvania warehouse last week was deliberately set.

Officials said a $1,000 reward is being offered for information about the early morning fire March 25 fire at Monocacy Fabricators in Bethlehem.

No injuries were reported, but the flames destroyed much of the sheet metal fabrication plant.

The blaze prompted a utility to cut power to about 2,500 homes and sent plumes of smoke visible for miles that also blanketed sections of the city.

Crews had to return to battle hot spots in the days following the fire.
