Drought-ridden Kickapoo Reservation hit by fire

A fire that may have been set intentionally destroyed 900 acres of the Kickapoo Reservation on March 10.

Efforts to fight the blaze were hindered due to long-standing drought conditions on the reservation. Fire fighters had to resort to special techniques because they didn't have enough water.

The tribe is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest for the fire.
