A mosque in southwest Missouri has burned to the ground in the second fire to hit the Islamic centre in little more than a month.

The Jasper County Sheriff's Office said the Islamic Society of Joplin centre was destroyed after the early Monday blaze.

No injuries are reported and no charges have been filed.

About 50 families belong to the Islamic Society of Joplin, which opened in 2007 as a mosque and community centre.

A blaze at the same building on July 4 caused minor damage and was determined arson.

No arrests were made and the FBI has offered a $15,000 reward for information leading to charges in that fire.

The agency released video footage of what appeared to be a man starting the July blaze.
