    Soldier's family hit by arsonists a day after his funeral

    FAIRFIELD, Ohio - Authorities have offered a $5,000 reward to help solve the vandalism of a car and American flags at the home of relatives of a soldier who died from wounds suffered in Iraq.

    The day after the funeral of Army Pfc. Tim Hines, vandals pulled the flags out of the family's yard, stuffed them under a car in the driveway and set the whole thing on fire.

    No arrests had been made as of Monday night.

    "We are hoping that anyone stupid enough to do something like this will be stupid enough to talk about it and someone else will come forward," said Lt. Ken Colburn, a Fairfield police spokesman.

    The car belonged to the sister-in-law of Hines, who died July 14 of complications from injuries he suffered last month in a roadside bombing in Baghdad. His funeral was Friday.

    Early Saturday morning, the family heard a car horn and saw that Hines' sister-in-law's Saturn was on fire. Firefighters doused the blaze and no one was injured, but the car was destroyed.

    Fairfield is in Butler County, 13 miles north of Cincinnati.
