Benoit Responds to Suspicious Fire at Coachella Mosque

Supervisor John J. Benoit this afternoon visited the Islamic Society of the Coachella Valley mosque, where federal authorities have taken the lead in investigating a possible arson fire.

“I am deeply concerned about this disturbing fire, which appears to be an act of arson,” said Supervisor John J. Benoit. “I want the public to know law enforcement is taking this very seriously. We do not tolerate domestic terrorism in our community. Whoever is responsible will be brought to justice.”
