ALTOONA – A 23-year-old Blair County man’s preliminary hearing on charges he set several fires across the area has been delayed until May.

Bryan Flickinger was set to face a judge Thursday morning, but his hearing was continued until May 22nd.

Police say Flickinger started a fire at the Greenfield Apartments last week.

Police also believe he is responsible for a barn fire on Ski Gap road the night before, and police say three fires were started at the house Flickinger last lived at.

Flickinger is only charged with the apartment fire, but police are investigating a connection to the others.
