Cause Of Muslim Mortuary Fire Unknown
(Las Vegas, NV) — There’s still no word on what caused a two-alarm fire at a northwest valley construction site for a Muslim funeral home and cemetery. Yesterday morning’s blaze near Lamb and Carey caused one-point-five million dollars worth of damage, but no one was hurt. The leader of the Islamic Society of Nevada believes the fire was not a hate crime, but federal agencies have teamed up with local investigators to determine what happened. Clark County officials say a family trust was building the mortuary and cemetery, which was set to open this summer.
