NEW YORK (AA) - A Turkish family home on Long Island, New York, was set on fire early Wednesday, the landlord told Anadolu Agency.

Yunus Karaoglu said fire started in the garage next to his house around 2.30 a.m.

He said firefighters arrived in 10 minutes but despite efforts to contain the blaze, his garage and vehicle were burned.

There are no casualties from the arson attack, he added.

Authorities said they have not found evidence of Xenophobia or Islamophobia.

Officials from the Presidency for Turks Abroad and Related Communities visited Karaoglu’s family and offered sympathies.
