Investigators believe SW Houston mosque fire intentionally set

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Investigators now believe a fire at a southwest Houston mosque was intentionally set.

On Saturday, the Houston Fire Department upgraded the investigation to incendiary.

The fire broke out Friday afternoon at a mosque in a shopping center on Wilcrest. No one was hurt.
