UNIVERSITY CITY -- Authorities say a University of Pennsylvania student has been arrested in connection with last week's fraternity house fire.

The Philadelphia District Attorney's office says sophomore Lorenzo Bonfiglio, of London, is charged with arson, causing catastrophe and other offenses for allegedly starting the fire Oct. 23 at the Psi Upsilon fraternity house.

The fire was quickly contained and no one was injured. University officials haven't released additional details on the fire or commented on the arrest.

Bonfiglio was arraigned and released on $100,000 bail. He is due in court Nov. 13.

It's not known if he has a lawyer who can comment.
