Los Angeles (CNN) -- A German man arrested in Los Angeles early Monday after a string of 52 fires -- mostly in parked cars -- was charged Wednesday with 37 counts of arson, prosecutors said.

Harry Burkhart, 24, was due to appear in a Los Angeles court Wednesday in connection with one of the worst arson sprees in the city's history.

He is also under investigation for arson and fraud in his home country, a prosecution official in Germany said.

"After reviewing the available evidence, we filed 28 counts of arson of property and nine counts of arson of an inhabited structure," Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley said in a statement issued Wednesday afternoon. "The current charges relate to arson fires at 12 locations in Hollywood, West Hollywood and Sherman Oaks between December 30 and January 2."

1. I wish they'd nail him with terrorism charges, too
What he did was truly evil.
