SOUTH WINDSOR, CT (WFSB) -

An arson investigation is underway in South Windsor to find out who set fire to a church.

Firefighters responded to the fire at Saint Peter’s Episcopal Church on Sand Hill Road earlier this month.

Crews said the fire was lit in the basement, filling the church with thick black smoke.

Police said the case may be related to a criminal mischief incident that happened a few days earlier where gas cans were poured out and a tractor was vandalized at a home nearby.

Anyone with information should call 1-800-84-ARSON.

A reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest.
