NEW HAVEN -- Fire officials say that a blaze that tore through the Diyanet New Haven Mosque may have been intentionally set.

One person was inside of mosque at the time of the fire but was able to get out safely.

Though the front of the mosque was under construction, the back of the mosque was still holding services.

The fire was upgraded to a second alarm fire and the building eventually became 'uninhabitable'.

Firefighters say the fire may have been intentionally set, detecting 'intent' with the fire.
