A former New York volunteer firefighter has pleaded guilty to setting two blazes, including one in March, 2011 that destroyed two houses and left 19 people homeless.

The Westchester district attorney says 24-year-old Trent Bronner of Sleepy Hollow pleaded guilty on Monday to three counts of arson. Bronner has been in jail since his arrest in April, 2011.

Bronner was a long time resident of Sleepy Hollow and a member of its volunteer fire department. Authorities say he helped put out the March fire and also admitted to setting another fire in 2010.

Bronner is to be sentenced on July 9. He faces up to 25 years in prison
