Islamic Mosque burned down in Joplin
- Jareen, CNN iReport producer
The fire department was called around 3:30am this morning to a fire at the Islamic Mosque located in Joplin, MO. When they arrived, the West side of the building was engulfed, and from there it quickly spread, the building is a total loss. There was an earlier attempt of arson of the same mosque on July 4th 2012, but was quickly extinguished, that person is still at large, the cameras on the building videotaped that attempt, and shows a good picture of the alleged arsonist.
