"BOOMZ"...and up in flames

First there was smoke, then "BOOMZ", a loud explosion and the building was up in flames. Sirens were heard wailing from the distance. By the time the firefighters arrived, the mosque was already engulfed in an intense fire. There was no way the building can be saved. After an hour of blaze, part of the roof collapsed.

This was what happened to Siglap Mosque. Arson? Act of terrorism? Or just an unfortunate misfortune? Read the news in the papers tomorrow.

Updates: A boy has been charged by the court for torching the mosque.

Looks like a very big fire.
