Fire Marshal, FBI task force still investigating Islamic Center fire

Travis County Fire Marshal Tony Callaway said he’s unaware that the Victoria mosque fire investigation would impact the release of information on the Lake Travis Islamic Center fire, and said he was unaware of any reports from federal agency Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to be released. Callaway said local investigators are coordinating with a regional Joint Terrorism Task Force on the Islamic Center investigation.

“As far as the ATF local office here, they came to our scene on the second and third day and haven’t been involved in the investigation,” Callaway said. “We’ve got a meeting with the JTTF Thursday morning to go over findings with them.”

Callaway also said it appears the Victoria fire this weekend and the Lake Travis fire Jan. 7 are unconnected.

Callaway said he’s been in contact with the State Fire Marshal’s Office this morning and with the JTTF on a regular basis throughout the investigation of the Islamic Center fire, and investigators have “information they’re currently working on.”
