Reward offered for info on fire

By Ryan Gueningsman

Authorities believe that the fire at Infinity Editions of Winsted June 21 was caused by someone being back in an alcove area of the building at the time the blaze started.

Investigators are interested in speaking with whomever may have been back in that area that day.

A reward of up to $2,500 is being offered to anyone for information leading to an arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the Infinity Editions fire, according to State Fire Marshal Casey Stotts. The reward is offered by the Minnesota Chapter of International Association of Arson Investigators.

"We go through and find the area we believe the fire started and rule out accidental causes," Stotts said. "There were no accidental causes found in the area."

The fire is still being actively investigated by the Winsted Police Department, and the state fire marshal's office.

Anyone with information on the fire should contact the Winsted Police Department at (320) 485-2600, or call the arson hotline at 800-723-2020.
