Suburban Firefighter Gets 10 Years for Arson


A man who admitted setting fire to houses while he was a volunteer firefighter was sentenced Tuesday to 10 years in prison.

Trent Bronner, 24, of Sleepy Hollow, had pleaded guilty to second- and fourth-degree arson, admitting he set fires in 2010 and 2011 which destroyed two homes and left 19 people homeless. Bronner then helped put it out. He was a longtime resident of Sleepy Hollow and the volunteer fire department’s website listed him as responding to the most fire calls from April 2010 to March 2011.
