Hazleton Man Sentenced for Setting Own Home on Fire

HAZLETON, Iowa (AP) – A Hazleton man has been imprisoned for setting fire to his home.

Court records say 49-year old Kim Tielebein was given 10 years at his sentencing Tuesday. He’d pleaded guilty to arson.

Prosecutors say Tielebein caused the fire at his Hazleton home on Feb. 25th. The home was in foreclosure.

Prosecutors also say Tielebein was on parole when he set the fire. He’d been convicted of two weapons crimes and of driving while intoxicated, attempting to elude while driving while intoxicated and driving despite a revoked license.
