COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- A huge reward is now being offered for information about the most destructive wildfire in Colorado history.

The announcement came from the Colorado Springs Police Department late Thursday afternoon.

Someone came forward anonymously and offered $100,000 of their own money for information leading to the identification and arrest of a suspect in the Waldo Canyon Fire.

Officials have already said the fire was human-caused. But they haven't said if it was accidental or if someone started it intentionally.

The donor has come forward to Crime Stoppers offering this large cash reward for anyone who provides information that leads to the arrest of the person or people responsible for starting the fire.

The Waldo Canyon Fire swept into Colorado Springs neighborhoods in June. Two people were killed and 346 homes were destroyed. It's the most destructive fire in terms of homes lost in Colorado history. Damage is estimated at $352 million.

The number to call if you have information is 719-385-2222.
