All six people who were inside the building when the fire started made it out safely.

A crime stopper bulletin said the suspects used “accelerant fluids” to light four fires. The store sustained severe damage as a result.

APD Crimestoppers is offering up to a $1,000 reward for information on who those people are. 

Albuquerque Fire Rescue crews told KOB 4 that there’s no reason to believe the two incidents are connection.
