Accused Fresno Arsonist Returns to Court

5/9/2008 Fresno, CA David Damore admits he started the fire at University Village Apartments five years ago. The complex was under construction at the time.

Damore's attorney says his client did start the fire, but the defense is asking for a conviction on a lesser charge.

Several people were injured in that fire and damage spread to adjacent buildings and cars.

Damore faces more than ten years in prison if convicted.
