SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A former volunteer Kamas firefighter is accused of working with a juvenile to set a house on fire so he could put it out.

Nineteen-year-old Cody Sargent, of Kamas, faces second-degree felony charges in the alleged incident.

A Salt Lake City judge yesterday appointed a public defender to represent him. Another hearing is scheduled for January 25th.

Kamas police say Sargent dropped off the juvenile at a house being used for storage. The teenager, who has been charged in juvenile court, then allegedly started the fire.

An insurance company estimated the damage at 22-thousand dollars. Nobody was injured.
