A MAN who set fire to his house while inside has been jailed for three years.
Richard Musgrove started the blaze in the bedroom of his partner’s house on Wilson Street, Dronfield, in May last year.
The 32-year-old called the fire service when the blaze began to get out of hand.
When firefighters arrived, he was found inside the property suffering the effects of smoke inhalation.
The fire, which damaged most of the first floor of the house, was started when clothing was set alight.
Musgrove, of Larpit Green, Whitwell admitted arson.
He was jailed at a hearing at Derby Crown Court.
