Both men were able to douse most of the flames by the time fire crews arrived.

Deputies say information from witnesses led them to a suspect at an apartment at 2757 S. 300 East in South Salt Lake. They say the suspect smelled of gasoline and smoke, and they arrested him.

Both the homeowner's garage and truck were damaged by the fire. The homeowner received some minor burns, but is expected to be fine.
