Two firefighters facing arson and official misconduct charges are opting for a trial in the matter.
Joseph A. Johnson and James B. Williford were indicted last fall on the charges, quickly pleading not guilty in the matter.
Reports indicate the two men were on duty at the Jacksboro Fire Department in October 2008, when they drove a Jacksboro owned truck to a Cove Street home and allegedly set the fire, according to Jacksboro Police Chief Danny Chapman. They then returned to the fire department and waited to be dispatched out, he said.
