MERRILL - The Brown family lost everything when David Ostrowksi burned their Merrill home down about two years ago. 

Ostrowski said he wanted someone to feel what it was like to lose everything. He will serve a 19 year prison sentence. 
 
Joe Brown lost everything in the fire including an irreplaceable antique car he spent ten years working on.

 Last year Joe got back to one of his passions for the first time. 
 
"I didn't feel like I deserved it," said Brown.

About two years ago 23- year- old David Ostrowski said he wanted someone to feel what it was like to lose everything.

"The guy that did it didn't even know them. I just didn't understand why," said Brown family friend and general manager of Peterson Sand and Gravel in Merrill Brandon Peterson.

Ostrowski got almost two decades in prison for burning down the Brown's family home in Merrill. 

He snuck in their garage and lit Brown's 1935 Ford Sedan on fire.
