A suspicious fire has destroyed a controversial mosque in Geelong.
Firefighters were called to the Manifold Heights former church at 2.10am on Wednesday, to find it in flames.
Seven crews battled for 50 minutes to bring the blaze under control but the building couldn’t be saved. Victoria Police are at the scene this morning investigating the fire, which they are treating as suspicious.
The inferno was so intense firefighters weren’t able to enter the building because of fears it could collapse.
