firefighter MA firefighters charged with setting fires

A Massachusetts judge has entered pleas of not guilty on behalf of five call firefighters accused of setting fires in three vacant buildings in Brimfield and Holland.

The state Fire Marshal’s office says the fires were set on Tuesdays between June 15 and July 13, including two in Brimfield and one in Holland. There were no injuries.

The suspects include 19-year-old Brian Findley of Ashford, Conn., 19-year-old Patrick Elliot of Charlton and 18-year-old Jordan Frank of West Brookfield. Others are 20-year-old Donald Moores of Brimfield and 18-year-old Dylan Lajeunesse of Holland.

They are call fighters in either Holland or Brimfield or both.

It could not immediately be determined if they had lawyers.

State Fire Marshal Stephen D. Coan says “firefighters as arsonists are not as uncommon as it should be.”
