Local unions offer $50,000 reward for tips

A group of police and firefighter unions announced a $50,000 reward Tuesday for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for setting off two explosions at the Boston Marathon that took three lives and injured more than 170 people and have set up a fund for victims of the blast.

About 60 firefighters were on duty during the Marathon and scores of police lined the route, all of whom sprang into action to help victims in the moments after the almost simultaneous blasts Monday afternoon, Edward A. Kelly, president of the Professional Firefighters of Massachusetts, said during a 2 p.m. joint press conference at Dartmouth Street and Huntington Avenue.
