Honolulu police arrested a 25-year-old man, who gave no local address, for attempted murder in connection with an apparent arson case at a home in Foster Village.

Police said the suspect was distraught over his relationship with a girlfriend, who lived at the home.

Fire investigators determined that the fire at the 2-story home on Ukali Street Monday night was intentionally set, said fire Capt. Terry Seelig.

The fire started at about 11:30 p.m. in a downstairs bedroom and was confined to the bedroom, Seelig said. Two residents of the home used a garden hose to help contain the flames. Three people were home when the fire broke out. All escaped uninjured.

Firefighters extinguished the blaze at 11:59 p.m., Seelig said. It caused about $6,000 damage.

Seelig said the home had six bedrooms and tenants rented the rooms.

Police said officers arrested the suspect at about 1 a.m. when he returned to the scene of the fire.

Police arrested the man on 3 counts of attempted murder for allegedly trying to kill a 60-year-old woman, a 38-year-old man and a 25-year-old man.
