A fire that damaged or destroyed about 20 big trucks at a south-side Indianapolis business is being investigated as arson.
The blaze was reported about 3:30 a.m. Thursday at M&K Truck Center, 1401 Harding Court.
The business said it was offering a $30,000 reward “for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the arson.”
Fire officials said smoke from the fire was visible for miles from nearby Interstate 465. Hundreds of gallons of diesel fuel spilled from truck tanks.
Semitrailers and dump trucks were among the vehicles that burned. The company said 12 of the vehicles are a total loss and seven others suffered significant damage.
Damage is estimated at more than $1 million.
