A massive fire destroyed an Orlando religious center just after midnight Tuesday and officials say it is the second fire in three days. Investigators are saying that an arsonist is likely to blame.

Flames were shooting from the roof when a police officer drove by and saw the Baha'i Center of Orlando on Hillcrest Street near Colonial Drive (t; target="0">see map) on fire again Tuesday morning.

The back of the building was already destroyed in a fire Saturday. Now, the entire religious worship center is a loss.

Demolition crews worked Tuesday to tear down the worship center.
