HANSON, Mass. — When he got home from work Monday night, Michael Robinson, 31, read an article online about a recent rash of local fires that were likely set intentionally. He was troubled by the news but managed to get to sleep.

Robinson was awakened abruptly Tuesday morning by a knock on his door and news that a fire had devoured yet another local building, but this one was a lot closer to home. The early-morning blaze in Hanson had destroyed a vacant building at 999 Main St. near Robinson's house.
