Los Angeles police have arrested a 24-year-old German national over a spate of arson attacks across the city.
They named the man as Harry Burkhart, who although originally from Germany, has lived in LA for some years.
He was arrested after resembling a “person of interest” captured on surveillance video.
More than 50 fires have erupted in LA neighbourhoods since the early hours of Friday. Vehicles parked on streets and in car ports were mainly targeted.
