SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - A man investigators say committed arson during the Carr Fire has pleaded guilty. 

Daniel Dulaney faces a maximum term of seven years in state prison. 

The Shasta County District Attorney's Office insists the maximum sentence be imposed on any person convicted of committing crimes during the state of emergency. 

"Due to the consequences that could have resulted from the fire, especially since the Carr Fire required every local firefighter and many out-of-the-area personnel this case would be no exception," the office said in a statement. 

The fire Dulaney set burned a small area in a field near Highway 44 and Dana Drive. 

He will be sentenced on Aug. 21.
