New Haven fire chief: Mosque blaze was arson

New Haven Fire Chief: Mosque Blaze Was Arson

NEW HAVEN - The fire that scarred the Diyanet Mosque of New Haven Sunday was intentionally set, Fire Chief John Alston said Monday. Alston stood in the steady rain before the blackened front and the white minarets of the house of worship as he announced the initial results of the inquiry, gathered close to city officials and congregants from the mosque. "We've detected that there is intent in this fire. This was intentionally set," said Alston, who said his heart went out to those who worship at the mosque. Alston declined to say what evidence was found or whether there was surveillance footage of the area. Police Chief Otoniel Reyes said officials would not discuss any aspect of the investigation at this time to ensure its integrity is maintained. Reyes said the criminal investigation was in its infancy stages. He asked that anyone in the community with any information, "however minimal you think it might be," come forward, as it may prove useful. A reward of up to $2,500 has been offered for any information that leads to an arrest or conviction in the case, officials said. The mosque currently is uninhabitable, Alston said. Gov. Ned Lamont said it was "especially hurtful and hateful" to attack a house of worship. "The one thing I find hopeful is, I heard from the imam (that) other houses of worship, churches and synagogues, have stepped forward and said, 'We want to help.' And what I heard here from the folks at this mosque is they welcome the help, but they want to worship right here in this place," said Lamont. "And we're going to do everything we can to make that happen." A police car was parked in the otherwise-empty lot outside the mosque...
