Las Vegas Fire & Rescue is investigating an arson incident involving car fires at a local Synagogue, Monday night.
The incident took place around 8:10 p.m. in the 1200 block of Arville near Charleston.
Tim Szymanski with the Las Vegas Fire & Rescue says the cars in the parking lot of the Chabad Jewish Center of Las Vegas and Southern Nevada were set on fire.
A restroom arson attempt was the first incident to take place prior to the cars being set on fire.
LVMPD is looking at surveillance video of a possible suspect at this time.
Rabbi Levi Harlig says it hurts and it's disturbing but unfortunately, it's not so surprising.
"Unfortunately, throughout the thousands of years of Jewish history, we’ve been targets of multiple attacks, after attack after attack. God is with us and he protects us and the Jewish nation thrives. The Jewish nation is alive and we’re getting better and were getting stronger." said Rabbi Levi Harlig.
The Synagogue has been closed off as a crime scene.
Updated: The arson is being investigated as a hate crime.
