Police opened an “arson inquiry” after firefighters were dispatched to battle a blaze at the mosque under construction in Muret, a suburb of the French town of Tolouse. No injuries were reported.

Forensic experts were also called to the scene. The final cause of the incident has yet to be officially established as the investigation continues, though signs strongly point to arson.

The fire broke out “in the early hours of Wednesday” the French outlet adds. Officials say no one was harmed in the incident.

This is already the second time the same mosque was set ablaze. In 2012 the building caught fire, with arson suspected as well.
