COLUMBIA, Tenn. (AP) -- Federal agents are investigating a fire that destroyed a mosque in Columbia.
Special Agent Eric Kehn with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives says the fire Saturday at the Islamic Center of Columbia appears to be caused by arson.
He said investigators also found drawings of swastikas at the scene. No one was injured in the fire.
Investigators plan to hold a press conference Saturday evening to release more details.
