The fire broke out Jan. 23 in a large factory building on Norman Street that was under demolition. It was empty at the time. A nearby parking garage and a telephone pole also caught fire, prompting crews to cut power to the area.

The fire destroyed the warehouse and caused damage to a nearby garage. One firefighter was hurt, though the injuries were not life-threatening.

A hazardous materials team was called over concerns about potential chemicals in the building.

A reward of up to $5,000 was offered in the case.

Firefighters put out a large fire that spread to several buildings in an industrial park overnight in Everett, Massachusetts.
