L.A. Arsonist Faces 100 Counts

Harry Burkhart, a suspected serial arsonist connected to nearly 50 fires in Los Angeles, will be charged Tuesday afternoon with 100 counts. Burkhart, a German citizen, is believed to have set a string of fires that shocked the L.A. area over a four-day period in early January. L.A. police said they believed the 24-year-old Burkhart was motivated by anti-American rage after federal officials imprisoned his mother, who was facing deportation.
