SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – The FBI says it has made an arrest in a fire set intentionally at the Chinese Consulate in San Francisco.
FBI spokesman Peter Lee said Monday that one suspect had been taken into custody.
Lee did not provide further details, saying FBI Special Agent in Charge David Johnson would have more information at a news conference.
No one was hurt in the New Year’s Day blaze that charred a doorway and damaged the lobby of the building.
Federal officials said shortly after the fire that it was not being investigated as an act of terrorism.
Consulate workers say surveillance cameras showed a person exiting a van with two buckets of gasoline, pouring it on the building before igniting the blaze.
The FBI said earlier that no bomb-making materials were found.
