Feds Offer $5,000 Reward for Info on Garden Ridge Pottery Fire

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is offering a $5,000 reward for information that leads to a conviction in the October 2011 arson of a Garden Ridge Pottery in Conroe.

The feds announced the move today "for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for starting a fire inside of the Garden Ridge Home Décor Store located at 16788 I-45."

The fire caused at least $15 million in damages, officials say, and investigators have determined it was deliberately set.

No one was injured in the blaze, although a construction worker subsequently died during the clean-up of the site.

Anyone with info on the fire should call 1-888-ATF-FIRE or 1-888-283-3473.
