A man was sentenced to 16 years in prison on Monday, in connection with a series of fires in Los Angeles' sprawling Griffith Park last year that injured a firefighter.
Superior Court Judge Norm Shapiro sentenced 44-year-old Gary Allen Lintz after Lintz pleaded no contest to one count of arson of a structure or forest.
Lintz also admitted the special allegations of great bodily injury to a firefighter and of having a previous arson conviction.
The firefighter was injured when three separate fires near a train museum burned 50 acres.
Lintz was arrested in August after witnesses reported seeing him near a fire.
He was originally charged with starting four fires. In return for his plea three counts were dismissed.
