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.

A new poll conducted by Quinnipiac University found overwhelming opposition to the way the arrest of Eric Garner was handled while the majority support the broken windows policy, which cracks down on low-level crimes to prevent bigger ones from occurring. Garner's death has brought the policy into the spotlight. The Staten Island man had been selling untaxed cigarettes when he was arrested. A police officer placed him in a chokehold and Garner died.
