A former Wallkill firefighter was sentenced to state prison Friday for a 2021 arson incident.
Robert Cromie, 56, will spend up to five years behind bars after he was convicted of arson in the third degree.
It all stems from an incident on Dec. 7, 2021, when prosecutors say Cromie intentionally started a fire inside a garage attached to his apartment on Bona Venture Avenue in the Town of Shawangunk.
The fire consumed the entire apartment.
There were no injuries in the incident.
Cromie was a member of the Wallkill Fire Department at the time of the crime.
