A former Kansas volunteer firefighter who is accused of setting more than a dozen fires late last year has hired an attorney and will appear in court next month.

The Hutchinson News reports Hutchinson attorney Rick Roberts entered an appearance Friday on behalf of 19-year-old Arlington resident Cody Knox. The former Reno County volunteer firefighter is accused of using a lighter to set 14 fires in county fields between Oct. 16 and Nov. 27, many of them near Arlington.

Reno County Emergency Management Director Bill Guy says Knox became a volunteer firefighter in May 2011. He didn’t know when Knox was suspended but confirmed he is no longer a firefighter.

Knox was arrested April 26 and is free on $7,500 bond. His next court appearance is June 4.
