Associated Press
VANCOUVER, Wash. — A 17-year-old boy who set a fire that destroyed a Vancouver, Washington, elementary school has been ordered to pay $2 million in restitution and serve 10 days in detention.
KPTV reported that sentence was handed down Monday in the fire that burned Crestline Elementary in February 2013.
The teen pleaded guilty in June to second-degree arson.
The Columbian has reported that Dylan Mork cooperated with investigators and was accompanied by his parents when he entered his plea.
Replacing the school has cost $22 million.
The teen’s lawyer says that while the boy admits to setting coats on fire, he never intended to burn down the school.
The three-alarm fire displaced 500 students. The replacement school is scheduled to open in September.
