Granby Fire Starter Sentenced to Prison

A Granby man will spend four years in prison after admitting he set a house on fire.  Scott Szaban broke into an unoccupied home on Chicopee Street two years ago and torched it.  He then pointed a pellet gun at police when they showed up at his mobile home to arrest him.  The vacant house was being renovated for sale at the time, and was owned by an Easthampton man.
