Authorities have determined that an early-morning fire Friday at a mosque in Thonotosassa was deliberately set.

An arson investigation is under way after the fire at the Islamic Society of New Tampa’s Daarus Salaam Mosque, 15830 Morris Bridge Road.

Firefighters respond to a fire alarm at 2:10 a.m., said Hillsborough County Fire Rescue spokesman Corey Dierdorff. A single engine arrived and quickly put out the fire at an entrance door of the mosque.

Deputies also responded to the scene and confirmed that holes in mosque’s glass door were not made by bullets, said Cristal Nuñez, a spokeswoman for the Hillsborough Sheriff’s Office.

No injuries were reported. The state Fire Marshal and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are investigating.
