The man accused of setting a deadly fire in Coatesville has a preliminary hearing today. Action News has also learned that George Donkewicz will be charged with setting four other fires in the Chester County city.

Investigators say he set them between June of 2007 and November of last year.

No one was injured in those arsons.

Police say Donkewitz confessed to starting another fire in December of last year, which killed 83-year-old Irene Kempest.
