DURHAM, N.H. (AP) — A former New Hampshire firefighter has been indicted on charges of setting fire to five apartments in Durham in February.

Twenty-two-year-old Gregory Potter, a former Peterborough firefighter, has been charged with five counts of arson.

Police say four of the apartments were rented by University of New Hampshire students.

No one was hurt in the early morning fires on Feb. 2 but three people were forced to escape and one building burned to the ground.

UNH officials say Potter was not a student at the school at the time.

Foster's Daily Democrat reports that Potter's also charged with falsifying evidence, accusing him of deleting photos of one fire from his cell phone.

It was not immediately known if Potter was being represented by an attorney.
