BALTIMORE (AP) — The U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has published a video of a man considered to be a “person of interest” in a vacant rowhouse fire that killed three Baltimore firefighters last month.

The Baltimore Sun reports that the ATF, city and state officials are offering a combined $100,000 reward to find the man. The video shows a man wearing a hoodie walking near South Stricker Street around 11:35 p.m. on Jan. 23. Hours later, Baltimore firefighters were called to 205 S. Stricker St. and entered an abandoned house to extinguish a heavy blaze.

The vacant rowhouse collapsed minutes later, killing Lt. Paul Butrim, Lt. Kelsey Sadler and firefighter/paramedic Kenny Lacayo.
