Authorities investigated an arson attempt at the Kardashian-owned boutique Dash in West Hollywood early Tuesday morning.

The incident happened around 11:20 p.m. Monday in the 8400 block of Melrose Avenue. When authorities arrived at the scene, they found a broken window, but no fire had been started in the store.

A witness who called told authorities that they saw a man throw a lit object through the window. Not long after that, authorities received a call from an alarm company indicating the burglary alarm had been activated at the store.

Los Angeles County fire officials initially said one person was taken into custody, but county sheriff's officials said no arrests have been made.

The LASD Arson and Explosives Detail are handling the investigation. Anyone with information was asked to call the office at (323) 881-7500. Those wishing to remain anonymous may call crime stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
