BOISE, Idaho (AP) - A 34-year-old southwest Idaho man police say set fire to a Boise home is facing a felony arson charge.

The Ada County Sheriff’s Office says deputies took Patrick Irving of Boise into custody following a Thursday evening fire and he was booked into the Ada County Jail at 1 a.m. Friday.

Police say Irving was spotted near the house fire Thursday and acted suspiciously.

The homeowner escaped the fire unharmed.

Investigators are trying to determine if Irving is connected to two other fires in the area in the last week.
