Authorities are investigating a blaze at the home of a Bosnian family, where vandals sprayed anti-Muslim slogans in red paint.

Sheriff’s detectives and authorities from the state Fire Marshal’s Office are investigating the arson and vandalism as a hate crime.

Sheriff’s spokesman Lieutenant Chuck Lesaltato said the sheriff’s office has a detective working only on this case, but there are no suspects yet.

Hasib Sejfovic lives in the house with his wife and three children.

The family came home from vacation to find the inside of their house destroyed and their garage vandalized with graffiti.

Sejfovic said his family left Bosnia in 2001 and did not speak English or know anyone. He works in lawn maintenance, and his wife works at a grocery store.
