Everett police arson detectives are investigating a Wednesday afternoon house fire and searching for a suspect in the case, a news release said.
Residents of a house in the 1500 block of Walnut Street heard a “boom” around 12:45 p.m. and looked outside where they saw a small fire on the outside of their home and a man lying on the ground, the release said.
The man, described as white, between 25 and 30 years old, with short facial hair and a green jacket and blue jeans, got up and ran westbound, witnesses told police. A preliminary investigation suggested he may have used some sort of fuel to set the fire, the report said, which could account for the “boom.”
The residents and neighbors called 911, and firefighters quickly extinguished the blaze, but the house had moderate damage, the report said.
No injuries were reported in the incident. Anyone who might have information in relation to the case is asked to contact Everett police.

The Everett Police Department is investigating two suspicious fires as possible arsons.
Just before 4 a.m. Saturday, Everett Police and Everett Fire responded to reports of a fire in the 1500 block of W. Casino Rd. Local residents were putting out the fire, which caused minimal structural damage and no injuries, Everett Police said in a news release.
Just before 5 a.m., police and fire crews responded to a second fire, in the 8600 block of 18th Ave W. That blaze caused substantial structure damage to the exterior of an apartment building but no injuries, according to the news release.
Arson detectives were called in but at that point did not believe the two fires are connected. The news release said that in both fires, local residents quickly called 911 and began fighting the blazes, preventing what could have been substantially more damage.
