Officials probing firefighter's connection to multiple fires
Officials say they are looking into a volunteer firefighter's alleged connection with six other fires after he was accused of setting one in Sleepy Hollow.
Trent Bronner is currently facing charges for allegedly setting a fire on Cedar Street that destroyed two homes.
Officials now say that Bronner may also be connected to six other fires dating back to July.
During the investigation into the Cedar Street fire, a forensic team examined debris, including burnt rugs for an accelerant. According to police reports, another fire was started on 128 Cortlandt St. on a hallway rug.
Reports also show that there was even a suspicious blaze in the trash can behind the Sleepy Hollow firehouse last August and Bronner was interviewed about it during the investigation.
In other reports obtained by News 12 Westchester, investigators are also looking into whether Bronner is responsible for two other suspicious fires on Depeyster Street set just six hours apart back in September.
