Friday, January 18, 2013

Pennsylvania State Police have solved a 4-year-old arson case involving a volunteer firefighter in Berks County.

Authorities say Kellen Klee has been charged with arson and has confessed to setting a house fire in Windsor Township last November.

Klee was applying for a firefighter's job in Virginia when the incident happened.

He told police, he splashed fuel on the home and used a lighter to ignite the blaze.

He then walked home, called police and returned to help battle the blaze.
