EASTON, Pa. -

A former firefighter, who's already serving time for setting several fires, has now been slapped with even more jail time.

Cory Praschyk, of Bethlehem, was sentenced Friday in Northampton County Court to one month to a year in jail, plus four years probation.

Praschyk started two fires in Lehigh Twp., Northampton Co., in 2010, police said.

Praschyk was sentenced to one to two years in prison last month for setting a number of fires in Lehigh County.

Praschyk served as a volunteer firefighter with several fire companies in the Lehigh Valley, investigators said.
