FORT PIERCE, Fla. — A fire overnight destroyed the Islamic Center of Fort Pierce, a mosque once attended by the Pulse nightclub killer and another American terrorist, reports CBS West Plam Beach Florida affiliate WPEC-TV.

The first crews on scene reported seeing flames shooting through the mosque’s roof.

Authorities said it was unclear whether the blaze was set and whether there were any ties to the 15th anniversary of the September 11 attacks.
