Prison awaits a Peru man who intentionally set a house on fire.

Fifty-eight-year-old Salvatore Fiumefreddo pleaded guilty Friday to the felony charge of aggravated arson and was sentenced to six years in prison.   He was initially arrested May 22nd after being seen walking away from his home at 1628 Schuyler Street.  Neighbors are credited with helping police develop him as the prime suspect.  Firefighters were able to control the fire fairly quickly. 

Fiumefreddo will have to serve at least 85 percent of his prison sentence.  He’s been in the La Salle County Jail ever since his arrest.
