CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A West Virginia man has been charged with setting a fire that injured a firefighter, authorities said Wednesday.

The state fire marshal’s office said Neil David Lambka of Keyser was charged with with two counts of first-degree arson and one count of causing injuries during an arson-related crime after the March blaze.

It is unclear if Lambka has hired a lawyer. Officials said he is currently being held at the Potomac Highlands Regional Jail on unrelated charges.
