New video of Forest Hills arsonist
There's a new view of a serial arsonist terrorizing the Queens neighborhood of Forest Hills, where at least seven fires have been intentionally set in less than two months.
A home surveillance camera is giving investigators their best glimpse yet of a man suspected of destroying new homes by burning them. The firebug seem to target buildings under construction, investigators said.
"He appears to be a young male of unknown ethnicity," FDNY spokesman Robert Boyce said.
The video was taken this past Sunday, about the time of the seventh and most recent fire. In that case, a home on 69th Road was torched for the second time.
Police are ramping up the search.
