THE BRONX - Three suspects were caught on surveillance video Monday evening starting a fire outside a Bronx auto body shop.

Some people are calling the incident, which took place at Valanca Auto Concepts on Zerega Avenue, a hate crime due to the materials that were set aflame.

Found among the burnt items were newspapers with headlines about topics including women working, police and others.

The surveillance video shows three people walking over to one of the buildings at the shop, dumping out a garbage bag full of papers, throwing a liquid on top of them and setting it on fire.

No one was in the building near where the fire was ignited.
