A suspect has been arrested in connection with a suspected arson fire at the Chinese consulate in San Francisco on New Year’s Day, the chief of the FBI’s San Francisco office announced today. Special Agent in Charge David Johnson said the suspect, Yan Feng, 39, of Daly City, surrendered to FBI and local law enforcement officers on Friday. The fire occurred at about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday at the consulate, located at 1450 Laguna St. Consular officials said last week that a person got out of a minivan parked in front of the consulate, poured two buckets of gasoline onto the front door and then set it on fire. The building was damaged but no one was injured, according to the FBI. Johnson said there is no indication thus far that the fire was motivated by terrorism or civil rights issues. Johnson said the suspect has been charged in federal court with two criminal counts of maliciously damaging property by fire and damaging a consulate or embassy by fire.
