A Cohoes man will spend 15 years in prison for an arson investigation that dates back nearly two years.

Police say 28-year-old Kyle Pipino intentionally started a fire at 262 Remsen Street in April of 2020. It was later determined that Pipino also attempted to start a fire at 256 Remsen Street, but was unsuccessful.

Everyone inside the burning building made it out safely, but a cat did die in the fire.

A warrant was later issued for his arrest in November of 2020, and he was arrested in Dallas, Texas, a year later. Pipino was sentenced in Albany County Court and will have five years supervision after his release.
