Volunteer Firefighter Accused Of Setting Home On Fire

Corey Stephen Dehart is charged with second-degree burglary and second-degree arson after authorities say he broke into his neighbor's home and set it on fire Monday night. Lawmen say Dehart kicked in the front door of the home, set fire to a sofa with a lighter, then went back across the street to his own home to wait for firefighters. They go one to say that when other firefighters arrived, Dehart returned to the home, kicked in the door again and put out the fire. Authorities say neighbors gave them Dehart's name because they suspected him in a number of fires in the neighborhood.
