$500,000 Sheepskin factory arson -- Denver, CO

More news and photos emerge from mysterious fire that destroyed a sheep skin merchant in Denver.

Investigators have estimated damages from the arson fire that destroyed a sheep skin seller at $500,000. The building is being called a “total loss”.

Also revealed is that the owners of Sheepskin Factory had no insurance. While they claim to be reopening, they must absorb all costs from the arson fire which destroyed the building, equipment, and all inventory.

Police released photos of a person they say “may” have set the fire, taken from security camera footage around the time of the fire. The images show only a person with a backpack and hood, with no face or other identifiable features visible.

As of yet, no group has claimed responsibility for the fire. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is still investigating.
