A teen was arrested and police are talking to three other young persons in connection with a fire April 13 that destroyed a home east of Lynnwood.

The arson was reported around 1:15 p.m. at a home in the 18400 block of North Road just south of Lynnwood High School, Snohomish County Fire District 1 spokeswoman Leslie Hynes said.

A man had been renting the house and was living there part-time. The renter was away at the time of the fire, she said.

No one was injured and the homeowner has insurance.

An investigator with the Snohomish County Fire Marshal’s office determined the fire was arson. Witnesses told officials several young people were seen running from the scene.

One boy was taken into custody and booked into the Denney Juvenile Justice Center for investigation of arson. Three other young men were being questioned.
