Different types of arson charges?

I usually hear about houses being burned down, buildings catching fire and cars catching fire. Those convicted of such charges are subject to a criminal record and a jail sentence. How about a creating a fire on top of a hill that destroys about 10 square meters of grass and this is the first ever offence for an adult.. Jailtime? arson charge? fine? or mischief / misdemeanor? Is there any recourse?

If found guilty under section 2163 of the Canadian federal criminal code of land rights, if crown land is destroyed in any manner, including fire, then the guilty shall serve no less than 5 years and no more than 15 years in federal prison and/or a up to a 50,000 dollar fine.

If it's personal property than it would be section 2284 and penalties are a little less harsh.

Any arson charge can land someone in jail. Why did you do it?

Don't think he will reply, he's probably on the lam.
