The second fire in two years to hit buildings at an Indianapolis Boy Scout camp has been deemed suspicious after arson dogs detected possible accelerants.

The Crossroads of America Council of the Boy Scouts immediately posted a reward of $5,000 for information about the predawn fire Thursday at Camp Belzer on the northeast side of Indianapolis.

The fire destroyed the oldest building at the camp, a cabin known as the K-Hut.

A November 2010 fire blamed on spontaneous combustion of refinishing materials.

The 130-acre amp along Fall Creek just east of Interstate 465 is used by 40,000 scouts per year.
