Former Firefighter Sent to Prison for Buring Down House Submitted: 01/16/2013
WAUSAU - A Wausau man who used to fight fires now will spend two years in prison for setting one.

46 year old Keith Rosenow burned down his home last January.

Authorities say he started the fire in a Wausau mobile home park as revenge on the manager for evicting him.

The fire also damaged the homes of two of his neighbors home's.

November, Rosenow pleaded no contest to second-degree recklessly endangering safety and unsafe burning of his own building.

He was sentenced to two years behind bars and three years extended supervision.

He'll get credit for 350 days already spent in jail.

Judge Greg Grau says Rosenow was a firefighter with the Weston Fire Department for 16 years, but left in 2001.

Rosenow's wife, Kathleen, is also charged in the case.

Her jury trial is scheduled for April.
