A charred building and broken windows are all that is left of a Sacramento Sikh temple after a suspicious fire nearly destroyed the gurdwara. 

Instead of attending services on March 13, members of the Gurdwara picked through the charred rubble. 

“This is too much damage. I can’t believe it,” said Sulakhan Singh who attends the temple. “Everything’s gone, totally lost.” 

The congregation has never received threats or had problems before. So it’s especially upsetting for members to hear someone may have targeted their temple. Arson investigators are labeling the fierce blaze that broke out before midnight as suspicious.
