Two volunteer firefighters, David Korot, 19, and 21-year old Vincenzo Marino, firefirefighters with the Drakesville Volunteer Fire Department in Connecticut were arrested Wednesday night and charged setting a wildland fire that burned 14 acres near Torrington. Both were released on $5,000 bonds and are scheduled to face a judge in Bantam Superior Court on March 28.

Mr. Marino appears in the video below, probably much to the chagrin of his attorney, if he is smart enough to obtain one.
