Los Angeles city officials are weighing whether to offer a $75,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or people who started a destructive fire that consumed an apartment complex under construction in downtown Los Angeles last month.

City Councilman Jose Huizar proposed the reward Tuesday in the wake of the late-night blaze that consumed a seven-story building in the Da Vinci apartment complex in the 900 block of Fremont Avenue.

Huizar, whose district includes downtown Los Angeles and Boyle Heights, is hoping the reward will compel witnesses to come forward with information and help solve the case.
