Guilty plea after man sets fire, threatens fire crews

ALBANY -  A Knox man has pleaded guilty to arson and obstruction charges after cutting down trees to block fire crews from putting out a fire at his home.

Police say, Kenneth Fortuin, 49, set fire to his home back on February 5.  When fire crews arrived, they discovered several trees were cut down, blocking the roadway and access to the property.

Fortuin then claimed he possessed a loaded handgun and threatened to shoot then if they entered the property to extinguish the fire.

Fortuin faces up to 7 years for arson, and obstruction of fire fighting operations.  He is ordered to pay just under $150,000 in restitution to cover damages.

He is due back in June for sentencing.
