Dogs set on fire in Brooklyn

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - Authorities say they are looking for the suspects who set three puppies and a dog on fire.

The charred remains were found inside a bag on 91st Street near Ditmas Avenue near a beverage distribution warehouse in Brooklyn's Canarsie area.

A surveillance video shows a van arriving there after midnight Saturday. Several men are seen getting out carrying a large black garbage bag, setting it on fire near a trash bin and then driving off.

It's not clear if the animals were alive or dead when they were set on fire.
