Authorities said Monday that they’ve made an arrest in the fire that was intentionally set at the Chinese Consulate in San Francisco last week.

The FBI was set to announce more details on the arrest at a news conference Monday, the local NBC affiliate reports. Consulate workers had said a person was caught on surveillance cameras pouring two buckets of gasoline on the building.

There were no injuries in the New Year’s Day blaze that damaged the building lobby and charred a doorway. A spokesperson for the FBI said shortly after the fire it was likely not a terrorist act.
