Firefighter Sets Firefighter On Fire, Charged With Arson

We are getting word this evening that an Apopka Florida firefighter has resigned from his department after being charged with setting a co-worker on fire.

Police say that 44 year old Jason Leblanc has been charged with arson and arson resulting in the injury of another.

It all started at a Christmas party back on December 18 when Leblanc poured lighter fluid on rookie firefighter Jack Shumate's leg and then lit him on fire. Shumate suffered second-degree burns on his legs and has not returned to work since the fire.

What is your opinion on this case? Do you agree with the charges? Post your comments below ...
