Police say a fire at a Queens construction site may be the work of an arsonist who has struck four other times in the same neighborhood.

The latest fire was set at around midnight Saturday at a construction site on 69th Road in Forest Hills. It’s the same location as a previous fire on Nov. 15.

Three other fires were set Nov. 8, Nov. 17 and Nov. 25 at construction sites in the same area.

Police say the arsonist enters the sites, ignites flammable materials and flees.

They released a photo of a man seen fleeing the scene of the latest fire on a motorcycle.
