Investigators probing a recent rash of suspicious fires in Forest Hills reportedly have surveillance video showing a man “looking like a ninja,” entering a construction site where one of the blazes broke out, police sources said.
The man wearing all black is seen scaling a wall at 108-49 66th Ave., where the fire erupted on Nov. 17 and spread to two nearby homes, sources said.
The suspect carried a backpack which investigators suspect may have contained incendiary materials used to start the fire, sources said.
According to the 112th Precinct, which covers the area, six of the seven recent fires in the area have been deemed suspicious.
All the suspicious fires broke out at vacant buildings that were being renovated or under construction.
