Houston mosque goes up in flames in yet another anti-Islam attack showing how fed up the west has become
HOUSTON – An ATF spokesperson has confirmed the cause of a two-alarm fire at a southwest Houston mosque does appear to be suspicious, because the fire had multiple points of origin.
Investigators said they are looking through surveillance video to see if cameras captured a potential suspect.
Firefighters with the Houston Fire Department initially responded to the fire at the Masjid mosque Friday afternoon.
The fire was put out shortly after crews arrived on the scene and no injuries were reported.
There is no word on the amount of damage to the mosque, but officials said several other businesses in the shopping center were damaged by the heavy smoke.
A co-owner of the shopping center said there was a prayer service held at the mosque Friday afternoon at 1 p.m., but it was over about an hour before the fire broke out.
The mosque is located at 11226 South Wilcrest near Belfort. Prayer services were moved to a nearby banquet hall Friday night.
