HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – A rental property owner will serve up to 11 years in state prison for setting a house fire that injured a firefighter in Susquehanna Township.
Jamat Manzoor, 46, of Tower City, was sentenced in Dauphin County Court on Wednesday to a prison term of 33 to 132 months, District Attorney Ed Marsico’s office said.
A Progress Fire Company firefighter suffered burns to his shoulders and hand while battling the flames.
The district attorney’s office said Manzoor was ordered to pay $117,660 in restitution to his insurance company and $2,355 to the Susquehanna Township Fireman’s Relief Association for damage to fire equipment.
Judge Scott Evans also placed a lien on Manzoor’s Corvette and his properties in Dauphin and Schuylkill counties to recover the restitution, fines and costs.
