AP  (h/t Cathari5) Police spokeswoman Fatina Ubaidatova says no one was hurt when the fire swept through the mosque in Kizlyar, located near the border with Chechnya.

Fire investigators were still trying to determine the cause of Friday’s blaze, which broke out after morning prayers. There were no indications that the fire was connected to the Islamic insurgency that spread through Russia’s predominantly Muslim North Caucasus region after two separatist wars in Chechnya.
