Peterborough police are investigating a suspected case of arson at the city’s only mosque.

The fire broke out at the Kawartha Muslim Religious Association’s mosque around 11 p.m. Saturday, police say. It’s unclear exactly how much damage was done to the building or whether anyone was inside 784 Park Hill Rd. at the time.

The fire marshal’s office has already investigated and ruled that the blaze was set deliberately.

Police are still investigating and say they will provide an update shortly.

More to come.
