The man who admitted to setting fire to a historic building in Greenwich, was sentenced on Tuesday. John Fox will spend the next 15 years behind bars.

He admitted to starting the fire on Main Street that left more than a dozen tenants without a home.

Fox tried to evade police by jumping from a second story window.

He was also sentenced to five years post-release supervision.
