SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A San Francisco performance artist charged with prematurely torching the Burning Man festival’s namesake effigy in August has been arrested on suspicion of trying to set fire to the historic Grace Cathedral, police said Monday.

Paul Addis was taken into custody on the top steps of the cathedral around 11:40 p.m. Sunday with an ammunition belt of small explosives strapped around his waist, said San Francisco police spokesman Sgt. Steve Mannina.

Police were tipped by a caller who said they overheard Addis talking about a plan to set fire to the church, Mannina said.

No fire was set and there was no damage to the church.
