The Coarsegold couple was convicted of arson Thursday for starting a string of fires in the Yosemite Lakes Park area over a six-week period last year.

Jackson, 41, and Waterman, 47, set 31 fires in 2013 between May 5 and June 25, authorities said. They were caught June 25 near Revis Circle East in Yosemite Lakes Park, near the scene of a fire set that evening near their home.
