SEATTLE (AP) -- The federal government is offering a $5,000 reward for information about a fire that killed two young children in a north-central Washington apartment duplex earlier this month.

Wenatchee police have said the Aug. 4 fire was arson and was gang-related.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives announced the reward Wednesday for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for setting the fire.

Six-year-old Ricardo Alejandre-Garcia and 4-year-old Mariano Alejandre-Garcia were found dead in the ground floor apartment. Their father suffered burns trying to save them.
