Huizen: Fire set to mosque

A fire was set to the porch of a mosque in Huizen Saturday morning.

According to police the fire was probably set. The damage was contained to the door of the property and smoke damage inside. The fire was discovered around five thirty.

The mosque wasn't closed, despite the smoke damage. "The fire department has cleaned the building with special equipment. But you can still smell very well that there was a fire here," according to a mosque spokesperson.

Many came to the mosque. "People wanted to share their emotions with each other. Through mutual contact most had been notified of the fire. The people are very startled." The spokesperson didn't know what motives the arsonists had.
