Fire destroys Jersey City mosque
Thick plumes of smoke and intense flames rip through a mosque in Jersey City, New Jersey. The two-alarm fire broke out just before 6:00 AM Friday morning. It took firefighters about an hour to bring it under control. Aerials from a news helicopter show firefighters on the roof of the Al-Tawheed Islamic Center. They used sledgehammers to break through windows to let the smoke escape. Local media is reporting no one was hurt in the blaze. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
