By  | 

One former volunteer firefighter pleaded guilty to arson charges in Shenandoah County Wednesday.

Ryan Sullivan admitted to intentionally setting fires in Shenandoah and Rockingham counties. He was a volunteer firefighter with the New Market Fire Company.

Another former volunteer firefighter, Michael Bell, is also accused of setting fires.

Bell appeared in Shenandoah County Circuit Court Wednesday morning for a pre-trial hearing on eight arson charges.

Judge Dennis Hupp granted Bell's attorney's request for a continuance to outline details of restitution statements.

Bell is reportedly working on a plea agreement.
