An eastern Iowa man will spend time in a federal prison after his apartment building caught fire in a meth-making operation. Forty-seven-year-old Donald Sheldon pled guilty to aiding and abetting the manufacture of meth within one-thousand yards of a school.

Court records show Sheldon allowed Joshuah Tiesman to use his apartment to make meth and the meth lab exploded, starting the apartment building and an adjoining building on fire. Sheldon was sentenced to 87 months in prison and ordered to make nearly 95-thousand dollars in restitution to the fire victims.
