Ryan Scharber told ABC's 20/20 Elizabeth Vargas, that he's not a pyromaniac. Instead, he said he set fires because of the stress caused by his constantly crying newborn son.

His side of the story is revealed to Vargas, who interviewed Scharber, his wife, and others who were involved in the investigation.

Scharber is expected to report for a five year prison sentence in June. He pleaded guilty to two arson-related crimes back in November of last year.

The special aired Friday night on ABC and WDIO/WIRT.
