Harrison David Burrows has admitted to setting a fire at a Brigham Young University animal "science" facility in the name of the Animal Liberation Front. The July 8 fire caused an estimated $30,000 damage and was the third attack on the facility since May. The 18 year old, animal rights activist faces one charge of destruction of property by fire and a second count of use of a destructive device during the commission of a crime. Together, the charges carry a minimum 35-year prison sentence and a maximum 50-year term.
