Man accused in pizza parlor arson faces judge

A man accused of having his own pizza parlor in Coram set on fire faced a judge today.

Firefighters battled a fire at Apizza Italy on Route 112 last year. Investigators later found Molotov cocktails on the roofs of all six businesses at the strip mall.

Michael Massian, of Selden, was arraigned today. He's accused of having a friend torch to Coram strip mall where his store was because the business was failing.

Massian's bail was set at $150,000 cash.
