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.
