LOS ANGELES (AP) — Arraignment has been postponed for a German man charged with arson in connection with a rash of fires set in Los Angeles over the New Year's weekend.

Harry Burkhart is due back in court on Jan. 24. He's being held on $2.8 million bail.

Burkhart was charged earlier Wednesday with 28 counts of arson of property and nine counts of arson of an inhabited structure.

The complaint alleges the arson was caused by the use of a device designed to accelerate the fire.
