An investigation into a late-night blaze at Peterborough’s only mosque Saturday has determined that the fire was deliberately set. Firefighters responded to the fire at Masjid Al-Salaam at about 11 p.m. after receiving a call from a neighbor. They quickly confined the fire to the main floor of the Parkhill Rd. W and Crowley Cres.
Mayor Daryl Bennett released a statement Sunday, saying “The faith communities are the cornerstones of our city, contributing to the charitable organization and helping those who are less fortunate, I look forward to the re-opening of Masjid Al-Salaam.”
