Pa. FF Held: Attempted Murder, Arson


A Bedford County firefighter is facing attempted murder and arson charges, accused of setting fire to his ex-girlfriend's home.

Terry Lee Sykes is being held on $3 million bond. Police said Sykes set fire to the back porch of the East Pitt Street home around 1:15 a.m. Monday.

Police said it is too soon to tell if Sykes' ex-girlfriend was the intended target because two other people live in the house with her.

No one was injured during the incident, but the siding on the house is damaged.
