BOISE -- An 18-year-old volunteer firefighter accused of intentionally starting a wildfire near Robie Creek in September is now out of jail.

Just after 8 p.m. Wednesday, Nathaniel Bartholomew bonded out of the Ada County Jail for $5,000.

Earlier this week, he appeared in court where his lawyer waived his right to a preliminary hearing.

He's been charged with arson after investigators say he started the Karney Fire near Robie Creek last month.

His next court appearance is set for Oct. 11.
