Only four months ago, this was the kind of place where no one thought twice about leaving a door or window unlocked. Jefferson had a small-town trust, rare nowadays, that comes from feeling you really know your neighbors. But lately, the slightest noise after nightfall--the crack of a twig or the crunch of tires against gravel--has townspeople jumping from their beds in terror. Families have taken to sleeping in shifts, their most valued possessions packed in suitcases by the front door.

Authorities said a former volunteer firefighter is suspected of setting most of the 21 blazes that have terrorized the town of Jefferson, N.H., since May, prompting residents to sleep in shifts and keep night patrols. Plainclothes officers hustled Lance Lalumiere, 23, into the police station in nearby Lancaster, where he was arraigned on one felony charge of setting fire to his brother's cabin. The state will seek to indict Lalumiere in 15 other fires as well, officials said.

A young man's fingers float across a wooden flute that sounds like a bird, while a woman chants in the trio's tribal language.
