23 apartments displaced in Centennial arson, suspect sought by fire officials

$5,000 reward offered in locating arson suspect in fire at Ivy Crossing in Centennial.

CENTENNIAL, Colo. — A $5,000 reward has been offered to help fire officials locate a suspect responsible for a Centennial apartment fire in early March. 

Twenty-three apartment units were displaced in the fire that happened at 12:53 p.m. on March 1 at Ivy Crossing at 7535 E. Harvard Ave. in Arapahoe County. 

When South Metro Fire Rescue (SMFR) firefighters arrived after 911 calls, alarms were sounding and smoke was visible inside the apartment building.

No one was seriously hurt in the fire and even though firefighters stopped the flames from spreading to apartments, the entire building's electrical utilities suffered serious damage. 

Residents couldn't return to their homes after the building department shut off the apartment building's electrical utilities. 

In a Twitter post, SMFR said the fire marshal's office said they "determined the fire was incendiary in nature" and worked closely with the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office. 

To report tips on this fire call 877-892-7766.
