ATF: Windsor Mill Fire Was Arson

WINDSOR, Colo. (CBS4) – A week after a 118-year-old feed and flour mill in the middle a developer’s renovation burned to the ground here, federal investigators announced at a press conference Sunday morning that the Windsor Mill’s blaze was intentionally set.

A $10,000 reward has been offered for information about the incident.

“We do not have any suspects or suspect information at this time,” said Deborah Livingston, Denver Field Division Special Agent in Charge with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

“This fire did not need to happen,” she added.
