The Modesto Bee reports (http://bit.ly/UMZQLS) that 46-year-old Lanette Sullivan, 45-year-old Wanda White and 24-year-old Erika Cardy were arrested on suspicion of arson and attempted murder on Wednesday in the fire the previous night at the former Lactalis USA plant in Turlock.
Turlock police spokeswoman Officer Mayra Lewis says the women and the man had taken shelter in the building when one of the women and the man got into an argument that escalated.
The women allegedly set the building on fire after the man escaped into the rafters. He was not injured.
At least two of the women were scheduled to appear in court on Thursday.
