Man accused of setting multiple fires in Red Hill headed to trial

RED HILL, Pa. - A man charged with setting a slew of fires in Montgomery County is heading to trial.

Lance Utley, 48, waived his preliminary hearing Tuesday.

He's accused of setting two small fires in the borough of Red Hill last month and trying to set a third. 

He was arrested after a struggle with police in Lehigh County.

Some charges against him were withdrawn Tuesday but he still faces a number of offenses including risking a catastrophe and arson.

Utley is due back in court for his formal arraignment Dec. 6.
