Former volunteer firefighter facing new arson charges.

A former Prince George's County firefighter will serve time in jail for setting fires instead of extinguishing them.

Prosecutors say last March, volunteer firefighter Jerome Engle set fire to a building on Riverdale Road.

He pleaded guilty Tuesday to second-degree arson in the case.

Engle faces 10 years in prison, but as part of a plea agreement, he could serve just a year in jail.

Engle was one of several volunteer firefighters in the county investigated for intentionally setting fires.
