Early video with radio traffic (above) posted by the Arlington County (VA) Fire Department from a two-alarm apartment fire at 5539 Columbia Pike on Saturday. The fire had been deliberately set and one man was arrested.
An Arlington man faces several felony charges in the case of a fire in a high-rise on Columbia Pike that resulted in lane closures on Saturday morning.
Demetrius Antonio Taylor, 27, started the fire after a disagreement with a woman he knew, Arlington police say. During an argument, Taylor physically assaulted the victim then set fire to a floor mat.
According to police, as smoke and fire began to fill the apartment, Taylor then pushed an infant in a stroller toward the flames and ran.
After he fled the scene, the victim was able to rescue the infant and escape the apartment.
