The hunt is on for the person who has set fires at three churches in three days in Brooklyn during Holy Week.
Police say the first fire was started at 2:45 a.m. Saturday at The Greater New Beginnings Church in East Flatbush.
They say newspapers were lit inside the doorway of the church.
On Palm Sunday, the suspect set fire to an object and tossed it through a closed window of Iglesia Cristiana Church in the Brownsville section.
The suspect also was caught on a security camera walking up to a door of St. Mark's Episcopal Church in Crown Heights and igniting newspapers before fleeing.
All three churches sustained minor damage.
