FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- Authorities in Flagstaff said they're looking for a possible arsonist in connection with two recent fires in Switzer Canyon.

The Arizona Daily Sun reported that one fire started Friday and another began Saturday about 150 yards away.

Police Sgt. Cory Runge said the proximity and timing are suspicious.

A man was questioned and released after the first fire, and police are trying to locate him again.

He was last seen wearing a black hat, a camouflage jacket and carrying a tan backpack and a large knife.
