Authorities say a man was injured as the result of an intentionally-set fire at a Johnson City residence.

Police say two people reported the blaze at 307 Deyo Hill Road around 6:30 a.m. The separate calls are believed to have been made by the 32-year-old man and his wife.

Flames were shooting from the front and back of the two-story house when firefighters arrived.

Fire marshal Paul Hlebica said there was a concern that someone was trapped inside the burning building. Firefighters searched the home and found no one inside.

A police investigator said a 32-year-old man who lived in the house fled after the fire started. He apparently received a ride to Wilson Medical Center from someone later.

The man, who sustained burns, was transferred to a Syracuse hospital where his condition was not known.

Police expect charges will be filed in connection with the fire investigation.
