Federal agents probe Wichita mosque fire

October 31, 2011


The FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are helping investigate a fire at a mosque in west Wichita.

No one was injured in the fire.

Wichita fire Capt. Stuart Bevis said investigators have not determined a cause of the fire early Monday at the Islamic Association of Mid-Kansas. But he said nothing was being ruled out.

The Wichita Eagle reported that Bevis said the mosque’s attic was gutted, causing at least $130,000 damage. He said the fire may have totaled the mosque because of extensive damage to the attic and roof supports.
