Most of the 10 Robeson County volunteer firefighters accused of intentionally setting fires made their first appearance in front of a judge Wednesday. About a half dozen of the accused volunteer firefighters saw a judge Wednesday. Most of them bonded out of jail while two came in to court in handcuffs. Two others made appearances in front of a judge Tuesday. The firefighters are accused of being involved in a two-year conspiracy of setting numerous fires in the woods and at abandoned homes. The sheriff's department says they're all volunteers with the Fairmont Rural Fire Department and the Orrum Fire Department. In all, police say there are about 90 arson-related charges and even more are expected.
