Dozens of times in the last several weeks, John Lovrovic drove onto federally protected woodlands, piled up twigs, magazines and other combustibles, added gasoline and set it all ablaze, authorities said Friday. Then he set other fires nearby, hoping they would combine for a major forest fire, they said. Officials allege that he once set eight fires in the same area; none burned more than half an acre.

OPINION
October 28, 2007 | Dave Gardetta, Dave Gardetta is a senior writer at Los Angeles magazine and the author of a cover story in the current issue about the May 8 fire in Griffith Park.
A week ago today, Malibu residents woke to discover that wildfire had broken out in the hills above the Pacific Coast Highway. By evening, nearly a dozen blazes were spreading across several counties, with flames igniting close to Poway, then Agua Dulce, Potrero, Los Olivos, Santiago Canyon and Ontario. For those of us who still enjoyed the luxury of a nearby TV through Monday night, the number of wildfires was being fixed, depending on your local station, at 15, 13, even 17.
