Police in Illinois have said the fire at the Federal Aviation Administration facility in Aurora was intentionally set but "is no terrorist act."

A contract employee was found in the basement of the radar facility suffering from self-inflicted wounds, police said. Brian Howard, 36, remains hospitalized following the incident. He was charged in federal court in connection with the arson fire, authorities said. A court date has not been set.
