POSSIBLE ARSON: Inferno Destroys Three Flatbush Homes, One Of Them Rebbe At Chaim Berlin

A massive fast-moving four-alarm blaze ripped through three homes in Flatbush, early Thursday morning.

Chief of Fire Operations Thomas Richardson says firefighters were on the scene at 1488 East 17 Street near Avenue N within 5 minutes, and found three homes on fire at 4:05AM.

Flatbush Hatzolah received multiple calls, and along with FDNY EMS treated and transported approximately 10 victims. Most of them suffered smoke inhalation, and are all in stable condition including an infant.

Highly credible sources confirm to YWN that Fire Marshall’s are in possession of a security camera footage of an individual seen running from the fire just as the fire started – in the home of a long-time Rebbi at Yeshiva Chaim Berlin.


There is additional footage showing the home literally bursting into flames – pointing to the fact that an accelerant was used.

  1. threats were made and NYPD as USUAL did nothing to investigate, remember crime is “falling” so the cops are all focused on making sure the STATS show so.

  2. Maybe this will put an end to this stupid new trend of students blaming are their life’s problems on their rabeim because they didn’t give them a candy one time during recess.

  3. Chasdei Hashem! they all made it out OK.

    וכל מי שעוסקים בצרכי ציבור באמונה, הקדוש ברוך הוא, ישלם שכרם, ויסיר מהם כל מחלה, וירפא לכל גופם….ונאמר אמן,

    May Hashem indeed bentch the Max mishpacha, with health, logevity, hatzlacha and strength to continue their great work.

  4. regarding concerned mom:,the tattoo on his arm said “never let go of the hate,kill Rabbi max yemach shiemoi”,in these exact words.

  5. The heimishe community knew already at 5:00 am Thursday who the suspect is, long before the investigators had a clue whether it was even arson.

  6. Someone made the tattoo on the suspect’s arm.
    Did he notify the authorities that this man wanted to kill the rabbi?
