PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. - A Plattsburgh teenager has been sentenced to five years in prison for arson.

Bruce Bombard, 17, was arrested last December after police say he set fire to a home on Lafayette Street.

The residents were awakened by the strong smell of smoke and got out safely.

In handing down the jail sentence, Judge Kevin Ryan said setting fires is indicative of a deep-seated problem, and he hopes Bombard will get treatment in prison.
