Officials said the incident happened after a man stabbed a woman during a fight Wednesday inside a home in the 5000 block of Fleetwood, near Nail Road.

After the stabbing, the woman ran to a nearby store and called for help. When police and firefighters arrived, the man had barricaded himself inside the house and set it on fire.

First responders were able to pull the man out of the house and take him into custody.

Neighbors said they did not know what happened until they saw the news on television.

The victim's four children were inside the home.  They were safe with the family Wednesday.
