On July 28, 2003 the Boston Globe reported that "a fire early yesterday at a mosque in Quincy [MA] is under investigation by state and local authorities, but it is not being considered a hate crime, State Fire Marshal Stephen D. Coan said... The fire, which destroyed a wooden porch in back of the Islamic Center of New England, might have originated in a dumpster on the property, Coan said. There is no determination yet whether the fire was accidental or arson, he added."
