WENATCHEE — An 18-year-old Lake Chelan area man who authorities say started a fire that injured two Chelan County Sheriff's Office deputies has been sentenced to more than six years in prison.

Deputies William Tuengel and Cyrus Bowthorpe suffered concussions last July after a livestock stable exploded while they were attempting to arrest Connor Leo Strange, according to Chelan County Superior Court documents.
