VANCOUVER, Washington — A 17-year-old boy who set a fire that destroyed a Vancouver, Washington, elementary school has been ordered to pay $2 million in restitution and serve 10 days in detention.

KPTV reports (http://is.gd/2OxBB6 ) that sentence was handed down Monday in the fire that burned Crestline Elementary in February 2013.

The teen pleaded guilty in June to second-degree arson.

The Columbian has reported that Dylan Mork cooperated with investigators and was accompanied by his parents when he entered his plea.

Replacing the school has cost $22 million.

The teen's lawyer says that while the boy admits to setting coats on fire, he never intended to burn down the school.

The three-alarm fire displaced 500 students. The replacement school is scheduled to open in September.
