A sheriff’s deputy stopped the driver of a van early Monday in Hollywood. The vehicle matched a description by witnesses, and the driver resembled the person in a surveillance video that police released.

The man’s identity was not immediately released, but fire Capt. Jamie Moore says he will be booked on arson charges.

A total of 53 suspicious blazes, mostly started in parked cars, have raged since Friday night in and around Hollywood and the San Fernando Valley.

In several cases, flames jumped to garages and apartment buildings. The fires have caused $2 million in property damage, but no one has been hurt.
