A 41-year-old Covina man has been charged with arson in connection with a 12,000-acre brush fire last week in the San Gabriel Mountains near Lytle Creek, authorities said Tuesday. James L. Lonczak, who was arrested at his apartment in Covina on Sunday, is believed to have intentionally set 24 wild-land fires in the same area since July 9, said Ron Huxman, a special agent with the U.S. Forest Service, at a press conference.
