MUSKOGEE - A volunteer Muskogee County firefighter admitted Thursday to starting seven grass fires the previous weekend, authorities said.

Dustin Davis, 25, a firefighter for Boynton Fire Department, told the department's fire chief that he set the fires to spend more time with his colleagues because he missed the camaraderie he once felt in the military, Muskogee County Sheriff's Deputy Darrin Berry said.

The fires were set in three rural areas around Boynton within hours of each other Sunday night and caused no damage or injuries, Berry said.
