Arson unlikely in Plymouth house fire

Mark Sargent, 46, pleaded guilty Friday to arsons at three locations: a Marshfield marina and Scituate vacation home on Dec. 19, 2012, and a fire at a commercial property in West Bridgewater on Jan. 30, 2013. Argent and his stepson, Jeanmarie Louis, 24, were arrested after an investigation into about 30 arson fires in towns south of Boston in late 2012 and early 2013. In the map below, see images and locations from the wave of suspected arsons during that time period.
