CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) today announced a reward of up to $10,000 for information on a devastating fire that occurred on Nov. 14, 2016 at the Central Living @ Carson Townhomes construction site located near South Tryon Street and South Boulevard. After an investigation of the incident, ATF has determined that the fire was intentionally set.
