GA: POLICE INVESTIGATE FIRE AT SCOTTDALE MOSQUE

DeKalb County officials said late Tuesday night that further investigation is required to determine what what caused the fire that damaged a mosque in Scottdale.

The fire Tuesday night at the Jaffari Center of Atlanta destroyed one building at the Patterson Avenue property. The one-story, 5,000-square-foot building was not occupied at the time.

People in another building were not hurt.

On its Web site, Jaffari Center bills itself as the largest Shi’a center in Atlanta. Shias make up the second largest denomination in Islam, after Sunnis.
