Joplin Mosque - Fire
JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) — A Missouri mosque has been destroyed in the second fire to hit the Islamic center in little more than a month.
The Jasper County Sheriff's Office says no injuries were reported in Monday's pre-dawn blaze at the Joplin mosque.
About 50 families belong to the Islamic Society of Joplin, which opened in 2007 as a mosque and community center.
A blaze at the same building July 4 caused minor damage and was determined to be arson. No arrests were made and the FBI has offered a $15,000 reward for information leading to charges in that fire. The agency released video footage of what appeared to be a man starting the July blaze.
