Not Guilty Plea From Cohoes Man Accused of Starting Fire

“Not Guilty” is the plea entered Wednesday by the man accused of starting a fire that spread to several buildings in Cohoes in November. 

51 year old John Gomes was reportedly trying to forge a sword when he started a fire in a barrel in his back yard. 

The fire spread to a nearby porch and given the windy conditions quickly spread to nearby buildings on Remsen Street.
