A reward is being offered for information in the fire at the historic Windsor Mill last week.

In a press conference Sunday, the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms said the fire was arson and that they have no suspects at this time. The reward for information is $10,000.

The fire in the mill started before 2 a.m. on Sunday, Aug. 6. The dramatic scene with flames shooting into the air was visible for miles and it took crews hours to get the fire completely out.

The mill was originally built in 1899 and was going through a renovation after being damaged in a large tornado nine years ago. The mill's owner, Blue Ocean Enterprises of Fort Collins, was in the process of converting it into space for a brewpub and other businesses. The company has been cooperating with the investigation and said it is continuing to look at options for the future of the structure.

The Windsor Fire Department asked for the ATF to help in the investigation because of the magnitude of the fire.
