PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Three fires on Boylston Street have all been ruled arson.
 
Authorities are now asking for any information on the series of fires — and even offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information that helps solve the case.
 
"All of these fires were intentionally set. We ask anyone with information to contact the toll-free Arson Hotline at 1-800-682-9229. All calls are confidential," said State Fire Marshal Peter J. Ostroskey in a statement released on Wednesday.
 
The most recent blaze was at 26 Boylston St. was on Aug. 26, when a vacant structure was set on fire. Prior to that, there were structure fires at 24 Boylston and at 32-34 Boylston. 
 
"An intentionally set fire causes concern in the community and an arrest is the quickest way to help the community return to normal," Fire Chief Robert Czerwinski said in a statement.
