SALINA, Kan. (AP) - A 25-year-old man accused of setting three fires at the former Flamingo Motel in Salina has been sentenced to five years and 10 months in prison.

The Salina Journal (https://bit.ly/1ZeRMCE ) reports that Dustin J. Gordon was sentenced Wednesday. He had pleaded no contest to two counts of aggravated arson and one count of arson.

Prosecutors say the fires were set in October and July 2014.

Gordon was also ordered to pay $20,000 in restitution to Janie Frick, who was living in rooms at the motel when the fires were set. He was also ordered to pay $86,500 in restitution to LaVelle Frick, who co-owned the building with her late husband.
