The NYPD is investigating an intentionally set fire in Brookoyn as an antisemitic hate crime after red swastikas were found spray-painted on a wall, the New York Post reported.
The FDNY responded to a fire at 374 Myrtle Avenue in the wee hours of Tuesday morning, with the swastikas found in a first-floor hallway inside the structure, along with a discarded can of spray paint.
There were no injuries in the blaze.
The structure hit by the arsonist has a hair salon on the ground floor, with apartments above it.
