Moorhead police release images of ‘persons of interest’ in July arson fire

MOORHEAD – Moorhead police released images Tuesday morning of two men they describe as “persons of interest” in a July fire that heavily damaged the building that once housed Coach’s Sports Pub.

Police Lt. Tory Jacobson said the images were captured from video collected from downtown businesses around the time police believe an arson fire was set in what had been the kitchen area of Coach’s bar.

The fire was discovered in the early morning hours of July 8.

A reward is being offered through the State Fire Marshal’s Office for up to $2,500 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the fire.

The tip hotline number is (800) 723-2020.

Anyone with information about the fire may also call Moorhead Police at (701) 451-7660.
