Man gets up to 20 years for arson at Lancaster tire shop


A Lancaster man will serve up to 20 years in prison for setting a fire that caused more than $600,000 in damage to an auto repair shop.

Andy Irizarry, 37, was ordered to serve at least four-and-a-half years for the December 2016 fire at Doctor Tire, at 444 South Prince Street.

He was found guilty of arson and conspiracy at a February trial.

The district attorney’s office said a Molotov cocktail was thrown into a window of the repair shop, and additional gasoline was used to set the building ablaze.

No one was inside at the time.

Prosecutors said surveillance video at a nearby store recorded Irizarry buying the gas used to start the fire.
