The fire occurred about 4:20 p.m. atop the Golden Bear Cafe on Sather Road, according to a statement from the university. The cafe is close to Sproul Plaza and the main entrance of the campus.

Investigators determined that the small blaze was “malicious and intentional,” the university said. Nobody was injured.

Police did not identify any suspects and asked anyone with information on the fire to contact university police at 510-642-6760.

A 34-year-old suspect in that case is in custody in San Francisco amid a federal investigation, authorities said.
