    Southland arsons

    From Dec. 29 to Jan. 2, a series of fires dam­aged prop­erty and left res­id­ents on edge across the L.A. re­gion. The fires broke out from the West­side to Hol­ly­wood and from the San Fernando Val­ley to Len­nox.

    On Jan. 2, Los Angeles po­lice booked Harry Burkhart, 24, on sus­pi­cion of ar­son after an L.A. County sher­iff's deputy de­tained him in con­nec­tion with at least 50 fires. Burkhart was charged Jan. 4 with 28 counts of ar­son of prop­erty and nine counts of ar­son of an in­hab­ited struc­ture at 12 loc­a­tions.

    Be­low is a list of re­cent ar­sons iden­ti­fied by po­lice and The Times. Last up­dated Jan. 2.
