SUNBURY — A former volunteer firefighter has been sentenced for his role in two arsons in Northumberland County.

Charles Jacobs of Lewisburg received four to nine years in prison. The sentence will run concurrent with the time he is already serving for arsons in Montour and Union Counties.

In November, Jacobs admitted setting a barn fire and truck fire near Milton.

At the time, Jacobs was a volunteer firefighter with the Potts Grove fire company.
