MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (AP) - A former volunteer firefighter in central Pennsylvania has admitted setting four fires last year.

Collin Miller pleaded guilty on Wednesday to counts of arson and recklessly endangering another person. Several other charges against the 23-year-old were dismissed.

He’s scheduled to be sentenced in November.

Investigators say shoe prints linked Miller to an August 2015 fire at a vacant home in Silver Spring Township, near Harrisburg. He was reportedly seen in the area by firefighters.

Court documents show Miller admitted he broke into that home and set it ablaze.

He later admitted to starting fires at his own Mechanicsburg home and another vacant home, as well as one between two businesses.

The Sentinel in Carlisle reports Miller had been a volunteer with the Washington Fire Company.
