23 year old Sadie Renee Johnson has pleaded guilty to setting brush and timber on fire on July 20th 2013.

 

She says she wasbriding as a passenger in a car traveling on Route 3 in Warm Srpings and lit a small firwork with her lighter and threw it out the window into the brush along the road.

 

She says her firefighter friends were bored and needed work, though she didn't intend to set a fire that burned 51-thousand acres and cost nearly 8 million dollars to fight.

 

Johnson will be sentenced on September 3rd and faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a fine of a quarter of a million dollars. She is required to pay back the money spent fighting the fire.
