NEWPORT, Vt. -

A volunteer firefighter charged with arson will stand trial.

A judge found Elmer Joerg, 45, of Holland competent for courtroom proceedings. Joerg has been accused of setting a fire at the Albany fire station -- the same place where he volunteered on staff. Authorities say he set the fire truck ablaze and the flames then spread throughout the building. Joerg is now being held at a corrections facility in St. Johnsbury.
