    Authorities announce whether California mosque fire was intentionally set

    COACHELLA, Calif. -- A Southern California mosque was damaged in a fire that authorities said was intentionally set.

    Flames were reported just after noon Friday at the Islamic Center of Palm Springs, according to the Riverside County Fire Department. The fire was contained to the small building's front lobby, and no one was injured.

    By late Friday night, the Sheriff's Department released a statement calling the blaze "an intentional act" and saying it would use all available resources to investigate.

    People at the mosque described hearing a "loud boom" and seeing flames, said Reymundo Nour, the mosque's acting imam, who was not on the site at the time. He said the mosque had been "firebombed."

    Authorities provided no details on how the fire was set or whether the department has any suspects.

    State fire investigators, the federal Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the FBI are assisting in the investigation.

    The mosque is about 75 miles from San Bernardino, where last week a couple who federal officials say were inspired by Islamist extremists killed 14 people. Some Muslims in Southern California and beyond have worried about the potential for reprisals, while leaders of various faiths have called for tolerance.

    In a statement released Friday evening, U.S. Rep. Raul Ruiz, whose district includes the area in which the mosque is located, called on authorities to investigate the blaze as a possible hate crime.

    "Our faith in humanity will not be intimidated," he said. "And we stand together against any form (of) violence towards the innocent."

    County and city officials also condemned the attack.

    "We see this as a cowardly act of vandalism that we not tolerate in our community," Coachella Mayor Steven Hernandez said.

    The mosque was hit by gunfire in November 2014 in what authorities investigated as a possible hate crime. No one was injured in the early morning incident. The case remains under investigation, and no arrests have been made.

    Gee, that's a shame - the building is still standing and no one was hurt.

    Obama is enroute now to express our outrage and sadness as a nation over this great tragedy.

    This will get more scrutiny than Ft. Hood and San Bernardino combined.

    I hope the Muslim that set the fire didn't burn his hand.

    Everyone is supporting muslims, except the muslims themselves. No wonder they are all leaving Syria and will enjoy their Turkish coffee in Berlin cafes while everyone else fights their battles.

    Nothing to worry about, I'm sure the terrorists won't be using this incident as a recruitment tool. Dumb teabaggers never learn. :facepalm:

    Now... The rest of the story.... (Paul Harvey)

    A group of Muslims were burning defective fake Syrian passports.
    There were so many, the fire lost control...
