Worship Center Destroyed

Savannah firefighters are investigating a suspicious fire that gutted the Islamic Center of Savannah on Dutch Town Road. Firefighters got a call around 3am Sunday morning that the building was on fire. By the time they were able to put it out, the building was destroyed.

Members of the center have asked the FBI to assist in the investigation to make sure this is not a hate crime. One of their members had his home broken into and someone fired shots into the garage of the center on seperate occasions.

Fire investigators are still trying to find out how the blaze started.
