(FixThisNation.com) – The FBI has offered a $10,000 reward to anyone who can supply information that will lead to an arrest and conviction in connection to the deadly wildfires in New Mexico. 

Last Monday, wildfires broke out in an area close to the village of Ruidoso. The fires resulted in two deaths and forced thousands of residents to flee. 

Over the weekend the FBI put out a notice in which they noted that they were looking for assistance in identifying what had caused the fires. The federal agency has suggested that humans might be behind the fires as they are offering a substantial reward in connection to the arrest and conviction of those responsible. 

The fires in New Mexico ended up destroying close to 1,000 homes and over 1,400 structures. Ruidoso’s full-time residents were allowed by local officials to return to their homes. However, these homes might be left without electricity, gas, or water, and were informed that they should carry with them at least one week’s worth of water and groceries. 

Last week President Biden issued a major disaster declaration while also allowing for federal funding to be dispersed through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to help those impacted by the fire in Lincoln County and the Mescalero Apache Tribe. 

FEMA noted that as per the declaration, the funds can be used for home repairs, and temporary housing as well as providing loans for property losses that were uninsured. 

The South Fork Fire had reached 26 square miles as of Sunday, while the Salt Fire covered 12 square miles. The National Interagency Fire Center noted that the first was 26 percent contained while the second was 7 percent contained.
