SOUTHWEST HOUSTON –   One day after Christmas, as most of us unwind during a long holiday weekend, members of a Houston mosque are finding it hard to relax. The fire department, along with ATF investigators, say a suspicious fire broke out at this place of worship on Christmas Day, destroying the inside.

Luckily no one was hurt. Investigators say the fire appears to be intentional, because it started in more than one place.

The Anti Defamation League released a statement calling the fire “disturbing” and saying that it “comes at a time when Muslims in our country are being targeted more and more.”

But despite current tensions, Muslims who attend the mosque don’t want to rush to blame. In fact, they say Houston is a great place to live and worship.

Now investigators are going through surveillance video, hoping to identify a suspect.
