LEWISBURG, W.Va. (AP) -

A Greenbrier County man is on trial on charges of setting fires that damaged several vehicles at a West Virginia State Police barracks.

Forty-8-year-old David Clayton White of Meadow Bridge is 1 of 5 people charged following the fires in 2011 at the Rainelle detachment. He is charged with second-degree arson, conspiracy and several other crimes.

Media outlets report that the trial began Wednesday in Greenbrier County Circuit Court.

The fires destroyed a State Police cruiser, a trooper's personal vehicle and several vehicles that had been seized.
