SNOW HILL, Md.- A former Virginia volunteer firefighter has been found guilty of arson and related charges in connection with a fire that occurred last year in Worcester County.

Thirty-eight-year-old David Clifton Parks, of Melfa, Va., was arrested last August when he set a two-story barn on fire on Sheephouse Road in Pocomoke City. There were no reported injuries.

During a non-jury trial held Monday in Worcester County Circuit Court, a judge found Parks  guilty on charges including second-degree arson and malicious burning. A sentencing date has not yet been announced.

Parks was also convicted of arson back in 2006, when he set several fires in Salisbury. He spent time in prison for those offenses.
