BUSHWICK, Brooklyn (PIX11) — Surveillance video shows the moment a hooded arsonist poured gasoline on the floor of a Bushwick bar on Sunday and set it ablaze.

In the footage, which was released by police Wednesday, the man is seen dumping fuel inside the bar — Rash — before kneeling down to light it. The ignition obscures the camera briefly before the violent blaze is seen.

“All the people in the bar suddenly rushed out screaming. I looked behind me … and there were enormous flames up to the ceiling. I was in disbelief,” said Rash owner Claire Bendiner told PIX11 News.

Police said two patrons, a 23-year-old woman and a 25-year-old woman, were injured in the fire. They sustained minor burns and were taken to a nearby hospital in stable condition.

The suspect was described as a man between the ages of 20 and 30. Police said he is about 5-foot-9 inches tall and about 180 pounds. It is unclear if they are investigating the attack as a hate crime.

“We’re not really sure what the motive was. It is a queer bar, so maybe that had something to do with it or maybe it was a disgruntled customer. I’m not really sure,” Bendiner said.

The fire caused hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages, but the owners vowed to rebuild and reopen the bar.
