The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, or ATF, announced a $10,000 reward for information about the Roberts Mission fire in Fremont County. The fire was reported on March 17th at 5am at the Roberts Mission - a historic parochial school.

ATF has determined that it was human caused, but they can't tell if it was intentional. The building was old and not structurally sound, so investigators had to remove most of the remaining walls for safety. However, the foundation and some of the more recent additions remain. The bricks have been saved for possible rebuilding later on.

Investigators deny rumors that a body was found inside.
