ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Authorities are trying to determine what caused a fire that damaged a mosque and a barbershop in Atlantic City.
No one was injured.
Firefighters found flames showing through the roof of Masjid Al-Furquaan when they arrived on the scene around 4:15 a.m. Wednesday.
Acting Fire Chief Scott Evans tells The Press of Atlantic City (http://bit.ly/1IQKnF4 ) the air conditioner unit on the roof collapsed, narrowly missing some firefighters.
Evans says the mosque and a barbershop on the first floor sustained heavy water and smoke damage. The three-story building next door that houses the Sewage Authority offices sustained minor damage.
