A suspicious fire in Prairie Ridge has led authorities to offer a reward for information regarding the blaze that started shortly after 12 a.m. Saturday at an abandoned mobile home on the 12400 block of 223rd Avenue East.

Firefighters from East Pierce Fire and Rescue arrived on scene to find flames shooting through the roof of the double-wide mobile home. Firefighters were able to contain the blaze to just half of the residence. After using a thermal device to ensure that all the hot spots had been extinguished, the last crew left around 3:45 a.m.

An hour later, 911 dispatchers received multiple calls that the same mobile home was on fire again. This time the other end of the mobile home was fully involved. Firefighters again extinguished the blaze. Fire marshals have declared the mobile home a total loss.

The Pierce County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the cause of the fires.
