Lance Muckenhaupt, of New Hyde Park, faces judge over sparking fire at Tamarac Lodge
NEW HYDE PARK - A New Hyde Park man who admitted to starting a fire that destroyed the Tamarac Lodge in upstate Ellenville was back in court today.
Lance Muckenhaupt turned himself in to the Ulster County sheriff yesterday. The 57-year-old was supposed to be sentenced last week for burning a bush without a permit, starting a fire that destroyed 44 buildings.
Jerry Lewis, The Who and Janis Joplin are just some of the stars who stayed at the Tamarac Lodge.
