The video shows a woman carrying a red gas cannister inside a store before the fire.

A video released earlier showed a woman with a red gas can drench the perimeter of the Yeshiva of Flatbush around 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

A security guard quickly doused the fire with water before it could spread. No one was hurt.

The fire is being investigated as a possible hate crime.
