Cause of Mosque Fire Remains a Mystery

Las Vegas CBS KXNT- On the anniversary of a blaze that destroyed an Islamic mosque and cemetary, authorities announced that they’ve exhausted their leads, and would like some help from the public.

Clark County fire investigators, working with the Federal Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms, concluded that the fire was deliberately set. But on Friday, they announced they’ve reached a dead end, and offered a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible.

More than 60 people were interviewed, said a spokesperson for the BATF, who declined to share further information because the investigation is ongoing.

The mosque at Nellis and Carey Avenue in Las Vegas was still under construction when it burned to the ground in the early hours of February 22, 2012 causing a $1.5 million in damage.

Anyone with information about the event should call the local field office of the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms at 702-347-5900, or Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
