Cameron Gardens' Fire Chief's Son Guilty of Arson, is Sentenced

The son of a Texoma volunteer fire department chief is found guilty of arson and is sentenced to prison time.

Kyle Everett Harmon was found guilty on one count of arson causing injury or death.

He's the son of Cameron Gardens' VFD Chief Richard Harmon and was a Cameron Gardens firefighter himself.

He's sentenced to 10 years in prison, with 599 days credit.

One count of arson, the charge on which he was originally indicted, was dismissed.

Wichita County Sheriff David Duke says when Harmon was arrested in Sept. 2010, he admitted to intentionally starting near three dozen fires in a three year time frame.

Kyle Harmon was arrested for intentionally setting a fire off FM 171, and at first denied any involvement in the fire that injured Cameron Gardens firefighter Dwight Murphy in Dec. 2005, but eventually admitted to setting that fire, too.
