More than one week since the fires in downtown Bend Police are still trying to find the person or people responsible for the seven fires. 
 
Bend Police Chief Jeff Sale was a guest on 11-10 KBND's Morning News on Wednesday and says they are still asking for tips from the public.  
 
"It's still a very active case for the police dept. at the height we had over  40 people working it Bend Fire  state police- etc.  There is still forensic evidence at a lab that we're waiting for that to come back -Host: Are you getting a lot of tips from the public? Yes. and we're following up on those leads, but we're still actively looking for tips from the public."
 
A $10,000 reward is being offered in the case. 
 
Chief Sale says at this point they have no reason to believe this is the work of a serial arsonist.  In some recent arson cases during the past year or so in Bend, he says they have made arrests and don’t believe those suspects are connected to the string of fires that started at Trinity Episcopal Church last Wednesday morning, they were reported around 2:15 a.m.
