A 26-year-old Pennsylvania woman is accused of setting fire to an apartment because she was upset with her child’s father.
Alexandria M. Roberson believed her baby’s daddy was at or headed to the home of the woman he was cheating on her with just before 2 a.m. So she allegedly went over there, stuffed some newspapers and a red pillow in the door, and set it on fire.

When one of the residents opened the door to investigate, they were met with knee-high flames, police said. No one was injured.
Witnesses saw Roberson hiding next to the apartment after the fire was extinguished, police said. She ran when confronted but was arrested a short time later.
Roberson was charged with arson, loitering and prowling at night and reckless endangerment.
