Pittsfield arson suspect pleads not guilty

A Pittsfield man accused of setting a series of series of house fires has appeared in court, but this case involves more than arson charges.
Phillip Jordan is being held without bail. Police say he set four homes on fire last September.
He was found the next day in Vermont by a border patrol agent.
The agent spotted Jordan’s car on the side of the road and says Jordan had no pants on, was yelling he needed to get to Canada -- and was sick from being poisoned by the government.
Jordan has pleaded not guilty.
