FEDERALSBURG, Md. - A Caroline County man is sentenced to 18 months in prison for setting a mini-mart on fire nearly four years ago in Federalsburg, according to officials.

The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office says 62-year-old Gary Greenwood pleaded guilty Monday to first degree malicious burning and false/misleading information.

The charges stem from a fire on July 1, 2011 at the Stop-and-Go Mini-Mart on South Main Street in Federalsburg. Fire officials say the fire damaged two connecting buildings, burning them to the foundation, but it did not damage the gas tanks.

Fire officials say the fire caused an estimated $400,000 worth of damages.

Authorities say Greenwood was sentenced to five years imprisonment with all but eighteen months suspended on the first-degree malicious burning charge as well as five years supervised probation. Officials say all ten years were suspended on the false misleading information charge. Greenwood was also ordered to pay $5,000 in restitution to the insurance company and $178.50 in court costs, according to the State Fire Marshal.

Officials say Greenwood's wife, 56-year-old Holly Greenwood, is charged with two counts of misleading/false information. Her charges were placed on the court docket for a later date.
