CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A fight between a couple became so heated that police say the man tried to burn down his girlfriend's apartment.

Antonio Wade, 29, has been arrested and charged with first degree arson.

Police say Wade was fighting with his girlfriend in her apartment on 6th Avenue when she asked him to take his clothes and move out.

Police say Wade took his clothes, but then set them on fire underneath the apartment.

"The fact that there was only one way in and out of this apartment obviously makes this kind of arson more disturbing and dangerous," Lieutenant Steve Cooper said. "Fortunately he's been arrested and charged."

Wade is in the South Central Regional Jail with a bond of $5,000.
