Posted: Thursday, October 6, 2011 2:00 am

CAIRO -- Two Cairo auxiliary firefighters Wednesday were granted a second pre-trial conference Nov. 16.

Richard Scott Pitcher, 18, of Cairo and David Patrick, 22, of Arlington, Ky., are accused of two counts of arson. Police allege the two set fire to a storage facility adjacent to 33rd street and the Mississippi River levee, owned by Abdul J. "Robert" Baba, on Jan. 22.

The second fire occurred April 16 to a residence owned by Kenneth Maupin on Illinois 37.

The charges are Class 2 felonies, which could result in a prison sentence of 3 to 14 years. Both are out on bond.
