A Connecticut teenager accused of setting five fires in Enfield has pleaded guilty to arson charges.

Eighteen-year-old Davidson Izzo is expected to be sentenced on March 31 to 13 years in prison, suspended after five years. He will get credit for the nearly two years he's been jailed since his arrest.

Under an agreement, Izzo, of Enfield, pleaded guilty Friday to setting two fires. The first fire was set at a barn behind a home in November 2014. A fire officer brought a woman who was inside the home to safety. Prosecutors say a cellphone video of the fire captured Izzo running from the scene.
