    Police said a fire at a South Windsor church earlier this month was set.

    Someone set fire to a South Windsor church earlier this month and a reward is being offered for information as police search for the person who set it.

    Police said they were notified of a fire at St. Peters Episcopal Church, located at 109 Sand Hill Road, around 7 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 1.

    After investigating, the South Windsor fire marshal’s office and South Windsor Police fire investigators ruled this as an arson case and police said it could be connected to an incident a few days earlier at a nearby home when someone poured gas and damaged a tractor.

    A reward of up to $2,500 is being offered for information that leads to an arrest and conviction in the case.

    Anyone with information about the case should call South Windsor Police Agent Mike Thompson at 860-644-2551, the confidential Tipline line at 860-648-NABM (6226) or the Connecticut Arson Tip Award Program, 1-800-84ARSON.
