The 22-year-old terrorized the town of Neuenhof in canton Aargau during 2018 after setting several fires.
The man told the court he joined the fire brigade in order to feel that he belonged, and set the fires so he could feel part of the team.
The court ordered him to undergo treatment and then, as he’s a German national, he will be deported.
