ARMOUR - A Texas man was sentenced to six years in prison and ordered to pay more than $300,000 for setting fire to a Delmont apartment building.

Brian Good, 56, of Aubrey, Texas, formerly Delmont, was sentenced in February to 10 years in prison, four suspended with credit for 107 days served, for first-degree arson, court documents state.

The arson charge was filed against Good on July 14, stemming from a Feb. 21, 2016, fire that destroyed a four-unit apartment complex at 104 S. Wilson St. in Delmont. He was arrested on Oct. 26 in Denton, Texas.

In addition to the six-year prison sentence, Good was ordered to pay approximately $319,000 in restitution to two insurance companies and two individuals, court documents state.

Good lived in Unit 4, where authorities said the fire started, but no one was home. No one was injured in the fire, but the building was deemed a total loss.
