Firefighter Arrested For Arson

Investigators have been saying that many of the forest fires that are burning in southeastern Kentucky have been deliberately set.

Now it turns out state police have arrested a firefighter for the State Division of Forestry and charged him with arson.

20-year old James Adam Yeager is in the Knox County Jail, accused of setting fires on wild land.

Yeager was working as an emergency firefighter for the state.

    How could he do this? He knows the work and how hard it is. As a fire fighter I hate to see this and it hurts to know it was one of our brothers. Well I want to let him know that he will no longer be a brother of mine. I have never meet this BOY and I'm glad. I hope he dies in jail!!!!!!!!

    I think he needs Community Service at the State min-wage and locked up at night. Cleaning up the fire damage and replanting all the trees that was destroryed.I was born and raised in those hills and still have property in Harlan County.If this takes the rest of his life so be it.
