Three people were caught on surveillance video fleeing an abandoned Lower East Side synagogue as it erupted in flames, police sources said Monday.
The footage shows the trio sprinting from the historic Beth Hamedrash Hagadol synagogue — which has been plagued by trespassing teens for weeks — right around the start of Sunday’s 7 p.m. blaze, sources said.
“It’s just devastating. There’s no other way to put it,’’ Holly Kaye, who worked for years to save the 167-year-old structure, said of the destruction.
Aerial photos show the charred landmarked building on Norfolk Street completely gutted and its facade destroyed.
Authorities were still investigating the cause of the blaze. Read more at NYPost.
