LOGAN — Investigators say a fire that destroyed a funeral home in Logan was deliberately set.

The State Fire Marshal’s office is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction.

The fire broke out Sunday morning at Chatman Funeral Home. The building also housed several apartments above the funeral home.

Logan Fire Chief Scott Beckett estimates damage at about $1 million.

The funeral home’s owner, Todd Fields, tells media outlets that he will rebuild.
