SHARE FBI offers $5,000 reward for information on Noble Horse Theater arson

The FBI is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the arson fire at the Noble Horse Theater in February.

Firefighters responded to the blaze at the stable at 1410 N. Orleans at 1:10 a.m. on Feb. 6, according to Chicago Police and the FBI. No horses were injured in the fire.

Fires had been set in two separate horse carriage areas, and the words “SAVE THE HORSES” and “FREEDOM” were spray-painted on two walls inside the theater, according to the FBI.

Thirteen horse carriages—worth about $130,000—were destroyed in the fire, and the building was also significantly damaged.

Investigators determined the cause of the fire was arson. Anyone with information should call the FBI at (312) 421-6700.

According to its website, the North Side theater stages theatrical performances of plays featuring several horses and has the capacity to stable up to 50 animals.
