CHICAGO (AP) - The FBI has increased a reward to $10,000 for useful information in the case of an arson fire that destroyed 13 horse-drawn carriages in Chicago a year ago.

Investigators found graffiti associated with animal rights extremists - “Save the Horses” and “Freedom” - on interior walls after the fire at the Noble Horse Theatre on the city’s North Side.

Investigators say fires were set in two separate horse carriage storage areas. The destroyed carriages were worth about $130,000 and there was significant damage to the building.

Anyone with information is asked to contact local police or the FBI’s Chicago office.

The FBI’s original reward was $5,000.
